Tudor Jackson’s working life has taken him from the law courts of Kenya to the roadside in Beverley.

In 1965, the barrister moved to newly independent Kenya to train African lawyers, as they were in short supply in the country at the time.

After working principal of the faculty of law at the University of Nairobi, he returned to the UK and was an awarded an OBE in 1988 for services to law after helping Kenya increase their number of lawyers to 1,500.

Wanting to give something back to the local community after retiring, the great-grandad has been helping schoolchildren safely cross the road since 1999 and at 87 years young could well be the oldest lollipop man in East Yorkshire.
