A plan to trace their Irish roots has ended in disaster for two New Zealand tourists, who were told they were too old to be insured on the roads.
Terry and Alison Kelso's long journey to County Antrim seemed even more taxing after they were dealt a devastating blow.
The New Zealand natives traveled all the way across the world to reach Glenarm, keen to research their family history. The couple planned to spend 15 weeks in the surrounding areas, checking out all Ireland has to offer.
Terry (84) and Alison (76) Kelso were intent on renting a car to help them get around on their sightseeing trip, but when they went to obtain insurance, they were told they were too old.
