Interesting People - Margaret Jacobs

100-year-old Margaret Jacobs has celebrated her birthday on the wrong day for almost a century.

(The mistake only came to light when the centenarian received a telegram for her hundredth birthday from the Queen.

Mrs Jacobs, from Treuddyn, Flintshire, had been celebrating every April 24th, but her birth certificate says she was actually born four days later on April 28th.

Mrs Jacobs' daughter, Olivia Santos, said: "We think when my grandfather went to register my mother's birth, and they put on the date of registration." So, really she's been celebrating the right day, and the Queen got it wrong.)
