Campaign launched to name street in Warsaw after second world war heroes including Newark's Jim Auton

A campaign has been launched to name a street in Warsaw after the second world war heroes who fought to keep resistance fighters supplied when they rose up against the Nazis.

The campaign sprung from the funeral at Newark Parish Church of the last of the fliers, Jim Auton, who took part in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 ­— an Allied air forces operation to drop supplies to the Polish Resistance.

Former RAF Bomb Aimer Jim, from Newark, died last month at age 95.
