The oldest deer in the world has died aged 21 after exceeding the average life expectancy by seven years.

Holly, whose incredible longevity was attributed to her love of Polo mints, passed away in her sleep at Mountfitchet Castle in Essex.

Holly inherited the title of the world’s oldest deer from her former stable mate Clover, who was officially recognised by Guinness World Records when she turned 20 in 2005.
