A meeting between Europe's oldest man and a group of children has been made into a podcast.

Henry Allingham, 110, from Eastbourne, shared some of his stories with pupils almost a century younger than him when he visited Hazelwick School in Three Bridges yesterday.

The discussion was filmed by school staff and an audio recording will be made into a podcast for people to download from the internet.

Mr Allingham, the world's third oldest man and one of the last survivors of the First World War, was awarded the freedom of the town of Eastbourne last March and has put his longevity down to cigarettes, whisky, wild women and his sense of humour.
