Grave of Rudolf Hess destroyed
The grave of Nazi leader Rudolf Hess has been destroyed to stop it being used a place of pilgrimage by neo-Nazis. His remains are now to be cremated and disposed of at sea. In 1941 Hess flew to Scotland in an unauthorised peace mission and was detained by the British for the remainder of the war.
