We are all rightly being advised to stay home and that is exactly what 99-year-old Tom Moore is doing.

But - having been inspired by the treatment he received from the NHS after breaking his hip and for skin cancer - Tom, who was stationed in India, fighting on the Arakan and Burma during the Second World War, has decided to raise cash before his 100th birthday.
