Hospital Stretchers From World War II Battlefields Recycled and Used as Yard Railings Around London

Reporter Jim Wheble took a closer look at the railings, noting the curve of the handles and the smaller ones that were used for children.

There’s a surprising link between railings and the capital’s wartime past – as Jim Wheble explains.
