`A sentimental husband in Denton, Greater Manchester, has celebrated his golden wedding anniversary by eating a 50-year-old can of chicken.
Les Lailey had been saving the tin of Buxted Whole Cooked Chicken in Jelly from a buffet he and his bride Beryl received as a wedding gift in 1956. They kept hold of the tin through numerous house moves, explaining to the BBC: I always said ‘on my 50th wedding anniversary I’m going to eat that chicken’ so I did.
He added: It was all right. But I don’t like chicken.’
