Friends and family gathered today for the funeral of a war veteran - described by the Prime Minister as a hero. Commander Eddie Grenfell - who was 93 - lobbied tirelessly for a medal to honour his comrades who kept suppies going to Russia during the Second World War.
The Government finally backed down and agreed to acknowledge the Arctic Convoy veterans last year and in March Commander Grenfell was presented with the medal he'd waited 70 years for. Sally Simmonds reports.
