The world's oldest set of sisters have proved they are still young at heart as they celebrate reaching the landmark combined age of 386.

Together with twin sisters Dorothy Thompson and Ellen George, both 96, and "baby of the family" Sylvia Sturgess, who turns 92 in April, hope to make it into the record books, the Daily Express reported.

The foursome siblings turned 386 when the eldest among them, Lillian Brown, recently had her 103rd birthday.

The sisters - whose maiden name is Clarke - were brought up in Northampton by Victorian parents. Incredibly, between them they have lived through 19 Prime Ministers, five monarchs and survived two world wars.

They also have a total of six children, 14 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and even one great-great-grandchild.
