Diary: DLKW's Dell celebrates Croydon workers crown

Tony Dell, Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners' head of art buying, has hit the headlines again for being a full-time worker at the rather impressive age of 88.

Last time The Independent was knocking on his door, but now the Croydon Advertiser has heralded Dell as Croydon's oldest full-time employee, travelling into Covent Garden on the X68 bus every day.

Dell started his career as an actor between 1936-1940 before joining the army and serving with the 16th/5th Lancers in North Africa and Italy. He joined adland in 1954 where he has remained ever since.

Dell said: "I rejoice in the fact that every day is different, but I'm having a ball!"
