D-Day veteran reflects ahead of World War Two 75th anniversary commemorations

This weekend, Second World War veterans from the Midlands will travel to Normandy ahead of next week's 75th anniversary of D Day - the largest seaborne invasion in history.

Among them will be 94-year-old Les Reeves from Birmingham, who was a tank driver during the war.

He remembers the moment he boarded a ship on the south coast of England a couple of days before the 6th of June 1944.
