KEEPING active and buying scratch cards is what Arbroath lady Nellie Gibb says is the secret to a long life as she celebrated her 105th birthday on Wednesday.

Her family and friends gathered at Seaton Grove to help celebrate her extra special day and she also received a card and message from the Queen who congratulated her on the milestone.

They enjoyed a party in Mrs Gibb’s honour and heard stories about her 105 year life.
