Captain Tom Moore honoured in City of London’s first ‘virtual’ ceremony

Captain Tom Moore said it was a “great honour” to receive the Freedom of the City of London in a virtual ceremony. The ancient tradition is believed to date back to 1237 and Tuesday’s ceremony was the first ever to be conducted by video-link. Second World War veteran Captain Tom was nominated for the honour after raising almost £33 million for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30.
