Cricket umpire, 92, forced to retire


A cricket umpire has been told he will have to give up his job, because he is too old.

Charles Fenton, 92, has been stumped by an insurance company, which says it will not cover anyone over the age of 85.

Mr Fenton told BBC Radio 5 live Drive he is still fit, he does not wear glasses and can stand on his feet for seven hours at a stretch.
