Have your say

A lightbulb is still shining on after an incredible 130 years.

The bulb, dating from 1883, was built with six internal filaments which have all stood the test of time. It first belonged to the late Florence Crook who once took it to school to dazzle her classmates.

It then passed down to her son Kenneth, in Morecambe, Lancs and is still in use by his widow Beth, 79, at their home.
