Remains of WWII Lancaster bomber recovered in Holland

  • Video report by ITV News' Kate Hemingway

The grandsons of a pilot who was killed flying a Lancaster Bomber over the Netherlands in World War Two, have been able to pay tribute to him thanks to a team of archaeologists.

The pair, who live in Newmarket and Essex, visited workers who are retrieving parts of the plane from the bottom of a Dutch waterway.

The aircraft was en route to a bombing raid in Germany when it was shot down.

Work to uncover the plane's wreckage has involved building a dam and draining parts of the waterway.
