Son of Stormy Lovegrove worries about WWII veterans' medal wait

`'My father had such an incredible experience out there" says Ross Lovegrove.

"There was an incident where he saved someone's life by diving in. You'd last minutes in the North Sea... my father wouldn't hesitate!"

"The medal was important. To receive [an earlier medal] from the Russians was a wonderful thing."

"But he never got the British one, and I think that's wrong. You can't wait long with old people"

"He was disappointed, because there was no reason for the delay. He deserved that - not more than anybody else - but he deserved that".
