Captain Sir Tom Moore 'was a light of inspiration'

Priti Patel has paid tribute to "hero" Captain Sir Tom Moore after the veteran died on Tuesday. "He was a light of inspiration at a time when we have suffered a great deal" said the Home Secretary. The 100-year-old war veteran raised over £32 million for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden during the first lockdown. Speaking ahead of Wednesday's commemorative clap to remember Sir Tom, the Home Secretary said: "All of us will think of him very fondly and really cherish the work that he did throughout the pandemic".
