Peggy Williamson has celebrated her 96th birthday with family - lots of it.

Mrs Williamson and more than 60 close friends and family members gathered at the Oaklands Hotel in Yarmouth Road, Norwich, including four generations of direct family.

The picture above shows Mrs Williamson with her daughter Betty Littlefield, 70, her granddaughter Lesley Littlefield, 46, her twin great-granddaughters Holly and Jodie Littlefield, 19, her great-great-granddaughter Esmai, three-months-old, and the newest addition to the family, great-great-granddaughter Darcie, who is one month old.

Betty Littlefield said: 'Jodie was pregnant and Holly then desperately wanted a baby, so quite suddenly I went from having two grandchildren to having two great grandchildren - and then of course my mum had two great-great-grandchildren.'

Mrs Williamson was born and bred in Norwich and all five generations of the family are now based in the city.
