A woman has won a fight to have her great uncle's name spelled correctly on a village memorial in Cambridgeshire 97 years after his death during the First World War.

Alison Corfield says the mis-spelling of Private George Samuel's name as "Samuels" on the memorial in Shepreth caused great distress to her parents after the war ended.
