World War One centenary: Mark Knopfler plays Last Post

Former Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler has lent his talents to a music project marking the centenary of the start of World War One.

Superact's The Last Post Project, which runs across the UK from 4 to 18 November, will see the famous ceremonial call played on different instruments in tribute to those whose lives were affected by the war.

Having grown up in Blyth, Northumberland, Knopfler dedicated his performance to the 17,000 Northumberland Fusiliers killed in the conflict.
