Moment WWII bomber raised from Channel

A German World War II bomber has been raised from the bottom of the English Channel.

The Dornier 17 aircraft was shot down off the Kent coast more than 70 years ago during the Battle of Britain.

Believed to be the only intact example of its kind in the world, it has lain in 50ft (15m) of water on the Goodwin Sands.

Nick Higham reports.
