Winston Churchill: Chartwell memories

Fifty years ago flags were flown at half-mast at Chartwell, near Westerham in Kent, as the death of Sir Winston Churchill was mourned.

To mark the anniversary, his grandson, a gardener, and a carnival queen have been sharing their memories of the war-time prime minister.

Churchill's Kent home is hosting an exhibition of personal items from his family, including the last ever photograph taken just before he died, aged 90.

The exhibition also includes family invitations to his state funeral held in London six days after his death.
