Veterans' association will close after Christmas meeting

A war veterans' group is calling it a day - with its youngest member now aged 87.

The north Wales coast branch of the Normandy Veterans Association holds its final Christmas get together on Thursday.

The national Normandy Veteran Association disbanded after this year's events marking 70 years since D-Day.

Member Brian McManus said: "It's been 70 years. We've got to close some time."
