London veteran remembers D-Day landings

Jim Radford, from Lewisham, east London, found himself in the midst of World War Two just a few weeks after leaving school.

A day before the 70th Anniversary of D-Day - the allied invasion of Normandy during World War Two - Mr Radford, who believes he was the youngest person to take part, remembers his comrades.

BBC London reporter Katharine Carpenter spoke to the veteran and Erick Leplanquais from the D-Day Museum.
