Teesside University degree for artist Ken Dixon, 86

Ken Dixon had considered himself 'absolutely useless' at painting, yet this 86-year-old grandfather has finally proven his talent.

When he picks up his degree in fine art from Teesside University later, Mr Dixon will become one of Britain's oldest graduates - a mere 72 years after leaving school.

Peter Harris reports.
