Captain Sir Tom Moore dies, aged 100

Captain Sir Tom Moore has died at the age of 100 after testing positive for Covid-19.

The charity fundraiser was taken to Bedford Hospital on Sunday after being treated for pneumonia for some time and testing positive for coronavirus last week.

Sir Tom became a national hero last year during the coronavirus pandemic after he raised millions of pounds for the NHS through his charity walk.
