Tokyo's 'oldest man'... Not Really !

Tokyo's 'oldest man' had been dead for 30 years
Officials had planned a birthday celebration to honour Mr Kato but they found him dead
He was thought to be the oldest man in Tokyo - but when officials went to congratulate Sogen Kato on his 111th birthday, they uncovered mummified skeletal remains lying in his bed.
