High-flying Harry's first parachute jump since D-Day

The last time Harry Read parachuted out of an aircraft he was 20 years old and above enemy-occupied France.

Today he jumped again - this time aged 94 and in the peaceful skies above Wiltshire. The D-Day veteran was accompanied by two grandchildren and a great-grandson.

Harry is raising money for charity and preparing for a possible jump next year - to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Richard Jones went to see how he got on.
