Churchill hearse being used by WW II vets





The hearse used to carry wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill is being offered to the families of veterans of WWII free of charge for funeral services.

The hearse carried the former Prime Minister's coffin to his final resting place in Bladon, Oxon in 1965.

Bristol-based MW Funeral Directors is beginning the new service on Wednesday as a mark of appreciation for the veterans' wartime contribution.

The gesture marks 63 years since the D-day landings.
