Farewell to a D-Day hero from Sussex

He was a hero in life and now Fred Milward has been given a hero's farewell.

Fred parachuted into France on D-Day and was the last survivor of a daring raid which probably saved the lives of thousands of soldiers - who were storming the Normandy beaches.

His funeral took place in Hastings.

We speak to his son Richard Milward and daughter Wendy Wells, and to historian Andy Saunders.
