Flanders WWI memorial call for fallen Welsh soldiers

Campaigners hoping to erect a memorial in the Flanders region of Belgium to all the Welsh soldiers who fought during World War I say they need to raise another £60,000 by September.

The Welsh Memorial in Flanders Campaign is planning to build a cromlech, or flagstone monument.

The aim is for it to be ready in time to mark the centenary of the war's outbreak in 2014.

Local people have already donated land for the memorial to be built on.

Roger Pinney reports from Flanders in the first of a two-part report.
