The crew of an RAF bomber which was thought to have been shot down have been buried in Italy, 68 years after their deaths.

The location of the remains of the three Britons and an Australian was unknown until a team of archaeologists discovered them near the city of Ferrara.

The men were buried in a war cemetery with military honours.
