102 year-old British man and his wife moving to New Zealand because 'UK is too crowded'

A Second World War veteran is emigrating to New Zealand today at the age of 102 because he thinks England is too crowded.
Eric King-Turner and his 87-year-old wife Doris will set out from Southampton on a 12,000-mile cruise taking them to their new life.
Mr King-Turner said: "It's a wonderful new adventure and I would say to anyone that if you want to do something you should do it straight away, while you can. "What's important is that when I'm 105 I don't want to be thinking, 'I wish I had moved to the other side of the world when I was 102'."
