George Johnny Johnson after joining the RAF

Britain's last surviving Dambuster will be given an honorary doctorate at the University of Lincoln today.

95-year-old George 'Johnny' Johnson was part of the squadron which carried out the famous raids on German dams in 1943.

A petition was launched earlier this year for Johnny to be knighted.
