A beeb story about the death of the oldest person has a great example of copy and paste repetition, repeating the same information within the space of 3 paragraphs.

Mrs Bolden had two surviving daughters, and her extended family includes 220 great-great-great grandchildren and 75 great-great-great-great grandchildren.

“She was always very family-oriented. She gave good advice and the family listened. She was a hard worker, and a farmer for most of her life,” said her grandson, James Bolden.

Mrs Bolden had 40 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren, 150 great-great-grandchildren, 220 great-great-great grandchildren and 75 great-great-great-great grandchildren.
