Flypast marks 'Hardest Day' of Battle of Britain

Seventy-five years ago, the sky above south-east England was the scene of the most intense day of fighting during the Battle of Britain.

This was known as the "Hardest Day" and was commemorated on Tuesday, when Spitfires and Hurricanes were again in action.
