D Day Hero

89-year-old D-Day veteran Jock Hutton is one tough bastard.

He wound the clock back 70 years on Thursday by parachuting into the same field that he landed in during the Normandy invasion.

Describing the feat as "no problem" after jumping from 5,000 feet he added that at his age life tended to get a little bit boring, "so you've got to grab any chance of excitement you can."

Asked if he had found the experience frightening, he said: "Once I stuck my head out the door and I got a heave from the back I was away.

"During my lifetime I have never been terrified. I'm just a vicious little Scotsman."

He may not have ever been scared but I'm sure he's done his fair share.
