A former personal assistant to Lord Mountbatten says the Queen is right to shake hands with Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.

William Evans was the Earl's personal chief petty officer and valet for ten years.

He saw Lord Mountbatten for the final time shortly before his murder by the IRA in 1979.
