Hundreds of people turned out at a Sussex beauty spot today to see an RAF helicopter deliver a granite memorial honouring a group of World War Two airmen.

The memorial honours the pilots and crew of Bomber Command - fifty thousand of whom died on bombing raids over occupied Europe. Derek Johnson sent this report from Beachy Head.
