An Inverness nursery has created a video in celebration of Colonel Tom Moore's 100th birthday.

Pupils and teachers from Lochardil Nursery sing Happy Birthday to the World War II veteran who has raised more than £30 million for the NHS.

The video shows clips of the children from the nursery at home and in their gardens, some with party hats and drawings as well as the nursery staff signing part of the song.

Captain Tom Moore originally set out to raise £1000 for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden but donations poured in after his story was shared with the nation. He was made an honorary colonel today.

He has also received a personalised message from the Queen.
