Prince William launches WW1 parks scheme in Coventry

Coventry's War Memorial Park has become the first of 500 parks to be awarded special status to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War One.

The park has been dedicated as a Centenary Field in a ceremony performed by Prince William.

The scheme, run by Fields in Trust and the Royal British Legion, is designed to protect parks and other areas for future generations.
