D-Day veterans make their final voyage 70 years on

Veterans from the West have been making what's expected to be their final journey to Normandy for a major commemoration of the D-Day landings.

This Friday marks the 70th anniversary of the invasion and as the surviving soldiers are all now in their late 80s and 90s it's thought the event will be the last large gathering of veterans paying their respects. David Wood travelled with one survivor from Wiltshire.
