Britain's oldest Scout leader has been honoured by the Queen - after spending nearly seven decades in the role.

Inspirational Ray Aldous, 85, has been the leading member of the scouts for 75 years and joined just as the Second World War was coming to an end.

He joined the scouts at the age of 11 and first became a scout leader at the age of 18.

But despite suffering from a 'nasty knock' ten years ago, he refuses to give up the hobby and actively volunteers for his local scout group.
