    The longest-living married couple in Britain have toasted to 81 years of marriage.

    Frank and Anita Milford tied the knot at Torpoint registry office in Cornwall on May 26, 1928, after meeting at a dance in the St Budeaux area of Plymouth in 1926.

    Mr Milford is 101 and Mrs Milford will turn 101 next month, making them both the only living couple to reach a century.

    The pair, who have two children, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, say they still have little arguments, but will always have a kiss and cuddle before they go to bed.

    Their 74-year-old son, also called Frank, said the secret to their parents' successful marriage was simply being happy with each other.
    He said: "They've enjoyed themselves, enjoyed their lives very much but they've been always very content with their lot."

    Mr Milford worked at Devonport dockyard until he retired at 60.
