Woman, 90, on sixth degree 'addicted' to studying

Ninety-year-old Joy Gibson, from Stratford-upon-Avon, is proof it is never too late to learn something new.

She re-entered academia at the age of 59 and now has five degrees to her name and a sixth is under way .

It followed a career as a drama teacher and journalist. As she reached retirement she realised "there was suddenly nothing to do".

She admits she has an "addictive personality" and is even considering a seventh degree.
