The vicar of Jim Booth's local church says he's 'still the same old Jim' despite the horrifying hammer attack on the 96 year-old. The Rev Stephen Kivett spoke to ITV News after visiting the D-Day veteran in hospital.
Mr Booth suffered serious injuries to his head and body when he was attacked two days ago at his home in Gipsy Lane, Taunton. A 39 year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and aggravated burglary.
The man who tried to kill D-Day war veteran Jim Booth has been sentenced to 20 years for attempted murder.
The man battered by a hammer is a 96-year-old war veteran and 'secret hero' of D-Day who once danced with Prince Charles' wife Camilla.
