Birthday boy Brandon is 11 - on the 11/11/11

BRANDON Smith who turns 11 today (Friday) has a rather unusual birthday this year, for as many will have realised, the date - November 11 - is the 11/11/11.

The St Thomas Moore pupil will be marking the milestone with his family.

“We only realised a few years ago,” said Brandon’s stepfather Richard Watt.

“We were just looking through a year planner, and we saw it. We just thought ‘oh, it’s quite unusual’.

“He didn’t weigh 11lbs, or wasn’t born at 11 or anything like that, though!”
