THIS WEEK IN 1989: I’ll keep driving vows Irene, 92

HMS Victorious leaves Portsmouth Harbour some time after 1958 as she has the angled flight deck that was fitted between 1950 and 1958.

NOSTALGIA: One of Portsmouth’s finest leaves harbour

Have your say

One of Britain’s oldest drivers vowed to stay behind her wheel despite being convicted of two motoring offences.

Irene Oldbury, 92, of Campbell Road, Southsea, crashed into a parked car, Portsmouth magistrates were told.

She failed an eyesight test shortly after the incident, but said the accident was not her fault.

There was no reason why she should not keep driving as she was in good health and had a pair of glasses to help her sight, she said.
