The Dean of Jersey has shared his Uncle's remarkable story of survival during the Second World War.

Stanley Kierle was 23 when his plane was shot out of the sky during the Nuremberg Invasion in 1944.

He survived a 22,000 foot drop from the air, the bombing of a hospital and a German prisoner of war camp.

The battle has been described as the worst night in the entire history of the Royal Air Force and one that remains etched in many minds to this day.
