A World War Two hero of the Arctic convoys has finally been presented with his campaign medal after 70 years.

George Morris from Hungerford was 21 when he sailed on what Winston Churchill called "the worst journey in the world".

More than 3,000 British and Allied sailors were killed as they carried vital aid to Russia. The Arctic Star medal was created two years ago after a long campaign to recognise their efforts.
