German Luftwaffe pilot returns to Bath to apologise for wartime bombing

Breaking News

A decorated German Luftwaffe pilot is to return to the city he bombed during World War Two to make a public apology.

Bomber pilot Willi Schludecker demolished dozens of Georgian buildings in Bath, Somerset, in April 1942 in his Dornier 217E-4.

Now 87 years-old and in failing health, his dying wish is to make amends with the city which lost 400 residents in the raid.
