UK WW2 Veteran says Dresden bombings were a 'war crime'

A World War Two veteran has said that bombing the German city of Dresden was "evil" and "something we should be ashamed of".

Victor Gregg, who turns 100 this year, urges people never to forget what happened.

British and American forces dropped thousands of tonnes of bombs on the city in four air raids over two days, killing tens of thousands of civilians.
