World War Two female Spitfire pilot dies, aged 94

A Gloucestershire Spitfire pilot, who flew planes for the Air Transport Auxiliary in World War Two, has died.

Joy Lofthouse flew Spitfires and other planes from factories to airfields across the country.

Her role freed up other pilots for combat duties, at a time when resources were scarce.
