Tributes are flowing for one of the last remaining Thai-Burma Railway survivors, Harold Martin, who has died aged 103.

POWs were sent to work on the Thai-Burma Railway which the Japanese planned to use to transport its soldiers.

After four days, Mr Martin and 72 fellow soldiers were picked up by the crew of the USS Pampanito.

WWII survivor Harold Martin goes back to the railway where he spent two-and-a-half years as a Japanese prisoner of war.

A memorial sits next to the railway lines at Hellfire Pass, a cutting on the Thai-Burma Railway, Thailand.
