British youngster to retrace escape route of Kiwi World War II pilot

A British youngster's about to retrace the escape route of New Zealand's most famous World War II pilot. 

Alan Deere's Spitfire was shot down during the Battle of France in 1940.

Now, six-year-old Jacob Newson will walk the 25km journey from the crash site in Belgium to the beach at Dunkirk to raise money for a Royal Air Force charity. 

Newshub Europe Correspondent Lloyd Burr went to meet him.
