A Lincolnshire great-great grandfather is awaiting the arrival of his 106th grandchild.

Ted Leeson, 91, from Grantham, has eight living children, 33 grandchildren, 61 great grandchildren and 11 great-great grandchildren.

Most of the family still live in the county, with the youngest being three-month old Cotie.

His great grandson Toby Fairbrother, 36, and his wife Zoe, 36, are now expecting their fifth child this week.

Mr Leeson said: "I'm quite happy with it. There's nothing wrong with having a big family, I don't think."

Daughter Paula Dickenson said: "He's always been there for us.

"He's always looked after us - he's worked all his life and always provided for us, we've never gone without anything."
