Neil Armstrong remembered by Scottish town Langholm

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon, will be given a private funeral in the US city Cincinnati on Friday.

Although he found worldwide fame for the moon landing, he made very few public appearances. However, one place he did visit was his ancestral home of Langholm in Scotland.

The BBC's Fiona Armstrong looked back at when the astronaut was given the freedom of the town.
