An Old Town man has had a book of poems published at the age of 95.

Richard Garrard says he is trying to bring back lyricism to poetry .

The book, entitled A Serving of Verse, was published by the Book Guild of Brighton.

Despite his age, Mr Garrard is still writing poetry and says he now has enough material to write a second book.

He is hoping a local school or amateur dramatics group may act out some of his verse.
