    Tributes have begun pouring in from across the country for Captain Sir Tom Moore, who died after a battle with Covid-19 and pneumonia.

    The veteran inspired a nation when he raised more than £32 million for the NHS, walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday during the first national lockdown last April.

    On Monday night, his family gathered at his bedside. Captain Tom died on Tuesday afternoon, and The Queen was among the thousands to pay their respects to the man dubbed a “Great British hero”.
