The British journalist who broke the news German troops were poised to invade Poland at the start of World War II has died, aged 105.
Clare Hollingworth reported on conflicts across the world, but it was that moment that defined her career.
In 1939, while working for the Daily Telegraph, she travelled into Germany from Poland.

She drove through a valley in which huge hessian screens had been erected, and, as a gust of wind blew one of the screens back, it revealed thousands of troops, together with tanks and artillery, all facing the Polish border.
Her report featured on the front page of the Daily Telegraph on 29 August, 1939.
Three days later, Hollingworth saw the German tanks roll into Poland.
