A World War Two airman is to be posthumously granted the freedom of a Cheshire town, 80 years after he narrowly missed houses as he crashed.

Lt Arthur Brown, a 23-year-old US Army Air Force pilot, came down behind Shrewbridge Road in Nantwich.

His body was never found after the crash but he is to be remembered with a memorial close to where his plane came to rest.
