It is 50 years since Geoff Workman entered the record books. he has celebrated by returning to the cavern where he set his world record. Geoff, now 84, spent 105 days living 100ft underground, in the dark and alone.
At the time it was thought to be beyond human endurance to live underground for so long. Geoff had aimed to stay in the cavern for 100 days but without a clock or daylight his body clock slowed down and when he emerged from the cave he had actually been underground for 105 days.
Geoff went back to the cave with ITV reporter Julia Barthram to relive his triumph.
