D-Day veteran 'could have cried' when he saw injuries

A D-Day veteran who was a torpedo operator on World War II warship HMS Belfast told ITV News of his experience on the day the ship opened fire on German positions in 1944, at a ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

Leading seaman Ted Cordery found himself operating a crane to hoist hundreds of soldiers to safety and recalled how despite being a "tough so-and-so" he "could have cried" when he looked down and saw the extent of the men's injuries.
