Gallipoli centenary ceremonies remember the lives lost

Relatives of veterans who fought in Gallipoli - one of World War One's bloodiest campaigns - have met UK Royals on HMS Bulwark ahead of services on the Turkish peninsula.

Leaders from Australia, New Zealand and Turkey - which all lost thousands of troops - will also attend memorials.

About 131,000 - made up of 45,000 Allied forces and 86,000 from Turkey - died in the campaign.

The fatalities included about 25,000 British military personnel, 10,000 from France and 10,000 from Australia and New Zealand.

Robert Hall reports.
