(Photograph) - Lifelong learning minister Malcolm Wicks hails Fred Moore, 107 - who is believed to be Britain's oldest student - as an example to the nation. Mr Moore from New Milton, Hampshire, has been attending art classs in the town once a week for more than 25 years. He said the lessons saved his life two years ago when his wife died. "Instead of sitting and crying about it, I decided to get on with my art.". Photograph by PA
