Ninety-year-old Ray Birds gave his great great granddaughter a cuddle for the first time as this Darley Dale family celebrated reaching five generations.

Mr Birds, of Two Dales, met three-month-old Milly for the first time this week.

Great granddaughter Claire Bailey, 25, granddaughter Sally Padron, 47 and daughter Pam Spillane, 68, were also there to mark the occasion.

Mr Birds, who used to work at Firth Derrion, has lived in the Dales all of his life.

Sally said: “I think Ray was thrilled to meet Milly for the first time.

“It is quite an achievement having a great great grandchild.”
