Queen's Christmas message pays poppy and Ebola tribute

The Queen's Christmas Day message will highlight the ceramic poppy tribute to World War One casualties and people dealing with the Ebola disease.

The hugely popular poppy installation at the Tower of London was "a reminder of the grief of loved ones left behind", she will say.

And she will reveal how she has been "deeply touched" by those who have treated victims of Ebola in Africa.

The message will be broadcast on both television and radio at 1500 GMT.

Nicholas Witchell reports.
