Britain's oldest man has died, aged 110 years and 63 days, friends have said.
Reg Dean, a former United Reform Church minister, died on Saturday, according to an announcement by the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir in Derbyshire.
He was the choir's life president, and helped to found the group in the 1980s.
Mr Dean, a former Army chaplain and teacher, survived two World Wars and witnessed 24 British prime ministers come and go.
He was born in Tunstall, Staffordshire, on November 4 1902, and became Britain's oldest man in June 2010 after the death of Stanley Lucas, 110, of Cornwall.
