A RETIRED policeman came second to none on 15-to-1, a Channel 4 TV quiz show, aired on Friday afternoon.

Ted Dilley from Sutton St Nicholas beat off 14 competitors to win the long running quiz show 15-to-1.

He said: "I wasn't really nervous. When you get to my age you get more philosophical about these things.

"My own feeling was that the questions weren't too difficult."

And with an impressive score of 252 the 70-year-old stands every chance of qualifying for the series final in February.
