Scuba diving course passed by man aged 74

According to a BBC article Brian Wall of Basildon, UK recently passed his BSAC sport diver course. At 74 years old, he is now the oldest person to qualify from a scuba diving course in the world!

Mr Wall decided to take up scuba diving in the UK after his daughter came back from holiday wanting to go scuba diving in Antigua, having seen some of the amazing marine life from snorkelling just off the shore. Brian hopes to go on to achieve more scuba diving qualifications.
