One of the 'forgotten heroes of Dunkirk' who faced a lonely 100th birthday in lockdown says he was overwhelmed after hundreds turned out to celebrate.
Eric Taylor stood and waved as countless well wishers drove or walked past his home to pay tribute.
A brass band surprised him with a special rendition of 'happy birthday' while two fighter jets from a nearby Royal Navy base also flew overhead.
And after an appeal from his family who had to cancel the planned celebrations for his 100th birthday due to coronavirus - he received nearly 450 cards sent from people across the world.
