    Her Majesty The Queen and the prime minister Boris Johnson have led the many tributes to Captain Sir Tom Moore ho’s died at the age of 100.

    He was admitted to hospital with pneumonia in January and again a few days ago. His family confirmed he’d tested positive for Coronavirus.

    Sir Tom was a veteran of the Second World War. He’d raised almost £39m for NHS charities during the first lockdown last year.
