'Little ships' arrive in Dunkirk on anniversary

Help

The fleet of "little ships" commemorating the 70th anniversary since the rescue mission that saved allied troops has arrived in Dunkirk.

Around 64 ships had headed to France from Ramsgate in Kent to mark Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of about 338,000 soldiers from Dunkirk's beaches.

As they arrived, two veterans of the evacuation paid tribute to the ships and crews which helped them 70 years ago.
