A nurse from Dumfries is retiring after 52 years in the job.

Florence Cameron began her career in Belfast during the troubles, and even spent time nursing Adolph Hitler's deputy, Rudolph Hess.

She says compassion played a key role in her job:

All my nursing career i thought how would i like my relative to be treated and therefore that's the way i would treat other people. That's what good nursing is about.
