FAMILY members from as far as India and Canada flew in to help a Girlington woman celebrate her 105th birthday.

Kartari Chand celebrated reaching the grand age on Saturday with a party at her home.

Kartari and her husband Karam were thought to have been the world’s longest married couple, having celebrated their 90th anniversary in 2015. Karam died last September at the incredible age of 110.

The couple’s impressive achievement meant they were guests-of-honour at many community events, and had even been invited to open The Broadway Shopping Centre in 2015.

Originally from a rural area of India, the couple moved to Bradford in 1965.

Her family is spread around the world, but regularly come to Bradford to mark significant birthdays and anniversaries.

Son Paul Chand said: “We are a very close family, we had relatives coming from India and Canada to help celebrate this day.

“We hope she’ll reach 110. It was a wonderful day for the family, she had a really good time.”
