RIP Rose Hacker, age 101

'World's oldest columnist' dies

A Londoner believed to be the world's oldest newspaper columnist has died at the age of 101.
Rose Hacker, who wrote a column every fortnight for the Camden New Journal, died after a short illness.

A former author and sex therapist, Mrs Hacker had her first column published in September 2006 - when she was 100.

Her first column - about nuclear disarmament - led to her being offered a fortnightly column. Messages of support have poured in from readers.

One thanked her for "speaking so much sense through all the noise".
