Arctic Convoy survivor attends Last Night of the Proms march

The last surviving crew member of a ship lost in the Arctic Convoys will be at the Last Night of the Proms for a special march dedicated to the vessel.

HMS Trinidad went down in 1942 - just seven months after the new cruiser undertook its first mission.

John Farrow, from Pembrokeshire, was a 20-year-old gunner on the ship.

Now 92, he will be at London's Royal Albert Hall for a performance written by the late composer George Lloyd - a Royal Marines bandsman on the ship.

Sarah Moore reports.
