Tributes to Battle of Britain 'Few'

The 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain has been marked by a reading of one of Sir Winston Churchill's most famous speeches and a fly-past.

Actor Robert Hardy read extracts from Churchill's "so much owed by so many to so few" speech, precisely 70 years after the address in Parliament.

The speech strengthened this country's resolve as Britain, and her Empire, stood alone against Nazi Germany.
