On being an Oldie, Michael Mansfield KC said, 'I never thought I was one, but I obviously am one'

On sitting next to photographer Don McCullin at the lunch, Michael said 'I didn't realise, until I was sitting next to him, that this was the man whose work I admired so much and looked at. In fact, we were born on different sides of Finsbury Park which for those of you who are Londoners, as I am, will recognise the park for all sorts of reasons but I won't go into those!'
