Eastbourne pupils write to Battle of Britain pilots

Pupils at an Eastbourne school have written to the last surviving Battle of Britain pilots to find out more about their stories.

The students at Cavendish School then received letters from 11 of the surviving World War Two heroes, as well as a video from Gp Capt Leonard Bartlett, a Battle of Britain Hurricane pilot who now lives in Australia.

Students Ben Trainor and Joshua Gillam read some of their letters, and teacher Mark Sidley speaks more about the project.
