Bomber Command memorial launched in Lincoln

Veterans of Bomber Command from across the country came to Lincoln today, for the launch of a memorial dedicated to those air crews who lost their lives in the second world war.

Now numbering only a few hundred, it was an emotional day not just for them, but for friends, family, and serving military personnel who attended.

Adam Fowler was there to capture a day of reflection and a day of pride:
