Jamie Anderson, the son of Thunderbirds' creator Gerry Anderson, has opened this year's Alzheimer's Society walk in Windsor.

Gerry Anderson, who died in December, revealed he had dementia at the start of the walk last year.

The 83-year-old, who lived in Henley-on-Thames, was a supporter of the charity.

His son hopes Thunderbirds' fans will sign up for the walk around Dorney Lake in his memory.

The Memory Walk is the Alzheimer's Society's annual fundraising event, and takes place across the UK throughout the autumn.

In Windsor the event will take place on 5 October.
