WIRRAL care home resident Jack Williams celebrated his 100th Birthday with a FaceTime message from family and a surprise party.

Jack, who lives at Trepassey Residential Care Home in Heswall, was showered with gifts and cards and treated to a traditional afternoon tea, a glass of wine and some cake.

Sadly, because of coronavirus social distancing measures, Trepassey is still not able to allow visitors, so Jack was only able to speak to family through social media on FaceTime.

He went on to marry and had three children.

When asked about reaching his centenary, Jack said: "I feel great about turning 100"
