Londoner remembers liberation of Belsen

On this day in 1945, Leonard Berney drove through the gates of a prison camp in Germany and was confronted by a vision from hell.

He was a major in the British Army, and had only been told that some inmates had typhus and needed to be contained. In fact it was Belsen - one of the most notorious of the Nazi concentration camps.

Sixty-eight years on, Mr Berney - who grew up in west London - has spoken to our reporter Ronke Phillips about the horrors he faced that day, and of the sights and sounds still seared in his memory.
