A town mayor and his wife who live in a house that is more than 450 years old said they were just caretakers of the historic property, preserving it for future generations to enjoy.

Market Deeping Mayor David Shelton, 74, and his wife Nicky,73, have owned and lived in the town's oldest private residence in Church Street since 2014 after moving to the area from Brighton.

"It has been said before, but as an owner, you really are just preserving history for future generations," said David of the house which dates to around 1563.
