A former landlady of a Great Yarmouth motel has celebrated becoming a fifth generation family member following the birth of her great-great-granddaughter.

Now, retired and living in Martham, Mrs Hambrook celebrated her 86th birthday on March 12 by meeting her three-month-old great-great-granddaughter.

To celebrate the exceptional family landmark, Judith had a special birthday lunch on March 12 which was attended by 14 of her family members.

Judith was joined by her great-great-granddaughter Millie-Mae, great-granddaughter Shannon Hughes, 22, grandson Jamie Hughes, 45, and daughter Jane Thompson, 61.

Daughter Jane said: "Little Millie-Mae was passed from pillar to post. She was as good as gold.
