A dedicated employee has brewed his final beer after 45 years in the job.

Herbert Kirk joined Elgood and Sons North Brink Brewery in June 1969 ... and he has been there ever since.

But ill health meant he had to leave the Wisbech brewery on Christmas Eve.

To say thank you, staff and directors presented him with gifts and a framed photograph at the Christmas get-together.

His leaving card read recorded his long service of 45 years, four months and 13 days.
