  • 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.

Newmarket trainer Charlie McBride has been fined by the British Horseracing Authority for entering the wrong horse in a race at Great Yarmouth.

McBride, who's based at Exeter House Stables, said it was a genuine mistake when three-year-old filly 'Millie's Kiss' was installed for the race for two-year-olds last month and won at odds at 50-1.

The horse was supposed to be stablemate Mandarin Princess, but the mix-up was only discovered after Millie's Kiss was scanned.

McBride was fined £1,500 and the horse was disqualified.
