RAF Metheringham holds World War Two reunion

Veterans from World War Two returned to the air base where thousands of raids over Nazi Germany were launched.

RAF Metheringham, in Lincolnshire, was home to 106 Squadron from 1943 until 1946 and this week dozens of survivors flew from around the world for a reunion, which some fear could be the last of its kind.

During the war, 59 Lancaster bombers and 300 air crew from the base were lost.
