Today is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, occupied France.

D-Day saw the greatest invasion fleet ever raised, landing 156,000 troops and support personnel on the beaches while special forces landed behind enemy lines by air. The landings changed the course of World War II, turning the tide against Nazi Germany and ensuring victory for the Allies.

Seventy years on from this historic date, some of the participants, now in their 80s and 90s, share their poignant memories of D-Day.
