Karam Chand, 110, believed to be longest-married dies
A man who was one half of what is believed to be the longest-married couple in the UK has died aged 110.
Karam Chand, of Bradford, died on Friday after 90 years of marriage to his wife Kartari.
The pair, who tied the knot in India in 1925 during the British Raj and moved to England 40 years later, have eight children and 27 grandchildren.
Mr Chand was born to a farming family, in a small rural village in the Punjab in northern India in 1905.
