'I was shocked!' - Somerset woman celebrates 105th birthday with surprise party

A woman from Somerset has celebrated a milestone birthday with a surprise party, a card from the Queen and a group of local pre-school children.

Pat Aldridge, who lives near Wellington, is now 105 years old.

With five children of her own, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, Pat welcomed the company of those more than a century younger than her.

Our reporter Bob Cruwys was invited to the special occasion and captured some of the best moments from the party - Happy Birthday, Pat!

I think I was shocked. I didn't expect it. It's very important. When you get older things like this mean a lot to you.
