Bernard Jordan has died. He was 90. Mr Jordan was famous for playing truant from his nursing home to attend the 70th anniversary D-Day commemorations in France.

Mr Jordan told media after the manhunt and the service:

“My thoughts were with my mates who had been killed. I was going across to pay my respects. I was a bit off course but I got there.”

And if that doesn’t touch your heart, nothing will…
