Story was written well, but 61 is not old

Have your say

I read your story on the front page of last week’s paper about the tragic death of Mr Patel.

The story was very sympathetically written, and for this you should be congratulated. However, I think that to describe the 61 year old Mr Patel as ‘elderly’ is rather overstepping the mark. No prizes for guessing my age.
