Remembrance parade for 700 Port Sunlight WW1 soldiers

A remembrance parade has taken place to mark the enlistment of 700 men from one Wirral factory who signed up to fight in World War One.

The men worked at Lever Brothers and were the largest number of volunteers to enlist from any factory in the country.

They left Port Sunlight to join the 13th Battalion Cheshire Regiment.

Steve Saul reports on the parade which included relatives of the men, for North West Tonight.
