West Yorkshire lollipop man studies for 12th degree


A West Yorkshire lollipop man is studying for his second PhD, on top of 11 degrees.

Bruce Berry from Wakefield graduated with his first degree from Manchester University in 1963.

Speaking of his "thirst for knowledge", 70-year-old Mr Berry said: "I like to keep an open mind - anything which catches my interest, I go for it."

He retired from the Post Office in 2002 to spend more time on his studies, but began work as Crofton Primary School's lollipop man to pay for his tuition fees.
