WW2 restored 'whale bridge' comes to Duxford
The D-Day landings were one of the biggest turning points of WW2, as allied troops launched a major offensive against the Germans from the beaches of Normandy.
To ensure the invasion was a success, the British army installed an artificial harbour with huge floating road bridges, to rapidly offload cargo and soldiers.
Seventy years on, one section of the so-called "whale bridge" has been salvaged from France, restored and brought back to Britain.
