Jacqueline Higginbottom became a lollipop lady in Sheffield 38 years ago - and at the age of 69 there’s no sign of hanging up her hat.

As the city’s longest serving crossing warden, the retired seamstress has watched generations of youngsters in Deepcar grow up. She was first stationed on Manchester Road, and now she is on the crossing outside Royd Nursery and Infants.

Jacqueline has been honoured by the council for her long service as part of the Diamond Jubilee of school crossing wardens.

“I love meeting all the children and chatting to them,” she said.
