Wimbledon joy for determined Des


A Choppington man was served up with a Centre Court ticket for Wimbledon on Monday after waiting in line for 56 hours.

To give himself the best possible chance of realising his top bucket-list dream, Des Robson packed up a tent and comfy chair and left his home at 6pm on Friday.

He drew up the list after surviving two heart attacks two years ago.

The computer technician arrived at the main gate of the All England club at 1.30pm on Saturday and he was rewarded with first place in the queue.
