Music 25/10/2016

A 103 year old great grandfather has passed away the same date and time that he was born.

Jimmy Newell from the UK was born on October 11, 1913 at noon and died at noon on October 11, 2016.

His son Graham said his dad had had a fall 16 days before he died, he lived on his own but was taken to hospital for a hip operation

"He did a lot of sport and was amazingly fit for his age. The irony is that had it not been for his fall we were going to take him to Spain for his 103rd birthday."

The odds of dying on the same day and time you were born are approximately 200 million to one.

Jimmy lived an exciting life and it is believed that he was responsible for the first ever wall cash point in London.

He had two children, five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren
