A war veteran has been transported to the French town he helped liberate in 1944 using virtual reality.

Chelsea Pensioner Frank Mouqué wore a virtual reality headset to hear from locals from the town of Armentières in northern France, including singing schoolchildren.

Speaking of the liberation, Mr Mouqué said:

As he wore the headset, he 'met' Armentières mayor Bernard Haesebroeck, who presented him a medal from the town.
