Archaeologists are digging up a Spitfire that has been lying six feet underground for 75 years since it crashed during the Second World War.

Work began today to recover surviving parts of the Mark 1A Spitfire from a field near Peterborough, in Cambridgeshire.

Pilot officer Harold Edwin Penketh was only 20 when he died in the crash near Holme Lode Farm, Holme, on November 22, 1940, on a training flight.

It is thought it crashed after what was thought to be a failure of the oxygen system or a physical failure of the plane.
