Museum shows Bristol Blenheim plane to son of killed pilot

A man, whose father was killed in World War Two when his plane was shot down in France, has been shown the type of plane his father would have flown.

Anthony Hawks, from Kingston Seymour in North Somerset, was only three weeks old when his father died in 1940.

His father's unmarked French grave was finally identified earlier this year.

BBC reporter Alice Bouverie went with Anthony Hawks when volunteer David Bradley showed him the Bristol Blenheim, the type of plane Mr Hawk's father would have flown.
