Veterans gather to honour Norfolk soldier facing a pauper's funeral

Veterans from across the region have been honouring an old soldier, who had no relatives and was faced with a pauper's funeral.

Thanks to an incredible social media campaign, 90-year-old Reginald Watson was given a fitting send-off at his local church at Ormesby in Norfolk.
