Bergen-Belsen liberation soldier Eddie Straight's story told

Seventy years ago British troops liberated Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany where more than 70,000 people died during the Holocaust.

Eddie Straight, 94, from East Cleveland was confronted by thousands of bodies when, as a British soldier, he entered the camp on 15 April 1945.

A film has been made of his astonishing war experience.
