Journalist who broke WWII news dies at 105

Legendary journalist Clare Hollingworth has died on Wednesday aged 105.

She became famous when, as just a young reporter with the Daily Telegraph, she broke the news of the start of the Second World War.

In 1939, she snuck across Poland's border with Nazi Germany, and saw an invasion ready to launch.

"I looked down and saw scores, if not hundreds, of tanks already lined up ready to go into Poland."

It was just the start of a stellar career, which would include reporting from conflict zones in Palestine and Vietnam, as well as covering the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the Algerian civil war.

However, she talked down her bravery, telling the Telegraph in 2011 that "I'm not brave, I just enjoy it".
