The man who has worked at Waterloo for 58 years - and counting [BBC News]

Date: 03/09/2019

To appreciate how much has changed since Jeffery Fry began working at Waterloo railway station, consider that his first job was shutting the sooty windows of the steam trains after they shunted in to the terminal. That was in 1961. Several role changes and 58 years later and the 73-year-old is now the longest-serving employee for both the railway station and South Western Railway - and among a select number of people around the UK to have worked so long for just one employer.
