Almost a century after he first sang with the choir of St Anne’s Cathedral, 105-year-old Billy Noble was back in the pews on Tuesday to enjoy the hymns he learned as a boy.

He was aged just three when the Titanic sank, has lived through two world wars and witnessed the internet revolution, but thinks the world hasn’t changed a lot despite all the turmoil and great innovations.

Billy was born in January 1909 and can still fondly remember his early years spent with the cathedral’s boys’ choir – not just for the singing but for the chance to play football as well.
