RAF carries out four air strikes against IS in Iraq in May

The Royal Air Force has carried four sets of air strikes against so-called Islamic State this month, as the UK armed forces continue to support the Iraq government’s fight against the terror group.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: “These strikes are another example of how the UK armed forces protect our nation and allies, every single day, from all those who seek to do us harm.”

Courtesy: BBC/Blue Peter| Captain Tom Moore has been awarded a gold Blue Peter badge for his fundraising efforts for the NHS. The war veteran, who walked 100 lengths of his garden, raised more than £30 million by the time he celebrated his 100th birthday last Thursday. He was appointed as an honorary colonel on his big day while a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast of a Spitfire and a Hurricane was organised by the RAF to mark his efforts. The gold badge is Blue Peter’s highest accolade and famous recipients include the Queen, Sir David Attenborough and Mary Berry. Presenter Lindsey Russell enlisted the help of Tom’s grandchildren, Benji and Georgia, to deliver the award.
