  • A woman believed to be the oldest person in the world has died at the age of 124 in the Philippines, local officials confirmed today.

    Francisca Susano, known affectionately as Lola, died at around 6.45pm on Monday at her home in Kabankalan in the province of Negros Occidental.

    Guinness World Records had still been carrying out age verification as of September to declare her the world’s oldest living person.
