RAF hero, 95, who was shot down and trekked 1,200 miles back to his squadron and his 94-year-old ex-spy partner - who operated behind Nazi lines - must sell home to pay for his care because 'he's survived too long'

AN RAF hero and his former spy partner have been told to sell their home to pay for his medical care because "he has survived too long".
Bob Frost, 95, and Mildred Schutz, 94, who live in Sandwich, Kent, have been left horrified because his £300k home is all he has left to pass on to his kids.

Mr Frost, a rear gunner who evaded capture by the Nazis in 1942, was admitted to The Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother Hospital in March. He had hurt himself after a fall.
The following night, he was moved to Ami Court nursing home in Dover, and was put on an NHS funded "end of life care" programme which costs up to £5,000 per month.
Now that he's in good health, the NHS has decided to withdraw funding the care plan, passing his case on to Kent County Council social services. And he must pay some of the cost.
Mr Frost told Mail Online: "The NHS said I'd survived too long and they were stopping my funding. I don't have a massive retirement plan.
"All my life I tried to buy a house so I'd have something to pass on to my children. But now they're taking it away."
Mildred, who laid a wreath for the Special Forces club on Remembrance Sunday at Westminster Abbey insists "he should be treated with dignity".
Her partner had managed to save at least £25k, but it was stolen by a family member who had access to his bank account.
Mr Frost, born in Camden, North London, was the rear gunner in a Wellington bomber shot down in September 1942.
His jet was flying to the raid the German town, Essen.
He met Mrs Schultz through Special Forces circles 20 years ago.
