'Bored to death' Devon pensioner Joe Bartley starts job

An 89-year-old who put an ad in a paper looking for work to save him from "dying of boredom" has started his new job.

Joe Bartley was met by cheers and applause from customers when he clocked on for the first time at the Cantina Bar and Kitchen in Paignton, Devon.

The pensioner landed the job after posting a plea in the Herald Express.

He said he was "overwhelmed by all the attention" and was looking forward to "getting down to the job".
