The Queen unveils RAF Bomber Command memorial

A £6m memorial to the 55,573 airmen of Bomber Command who died during World War II has been unveiled by the Queen.

At the ceremony, Chief of the Air Staff Sir Stephen Dalton said the "service and raw courage" of those who died and surviving veterans had been recognised.

Some 6,000 veterans and families of the deceased watched a Lancaster Bomber drop thousands of poppies in a flypast, as Robert Hall reports.
