SPRIGHTLY 77-year-old Kathleen Mitchell really is in the driving seat now she's passed her test.

Kathleen took the test last Thursday and passed with flying colours.

Kathleen, of Barnsley Road, Brierley, decided to learn to drive after her husband Tony, 78, suffered a stroke and underwent treatment for cancer.

"He still drives but it means I can take over if he doesn't feel like it or he gets tired. I can take him to appointments and see our daughter's house in Bude in Cornwall.

"It's on my bucket list to drive there."
