WWII Swordfish plane flies again over Somerset

The Swordfish, the WWII biplane which played a prominent role in the historic Battle of Taranto, has flown again to mark the battle's 70th anniversary.

The only Swordfish still flying is lovingly cared for by the Navy's own historic flight based at Yeovilton.

BBC Points West's Clinton Rogers was taken on an exclusive flight over the Somerset countryside.

Here, you can get a sense of what it was like to fly in the Swordfish all those years ago.
