Military reburials for WW1 soldiers in northern France

A reburial service has been taking place in northern France for 15 British World War One soldiers, exactly one hundred years after they were killed in battle.

Their remains lay undiscovered until 2009, when their bodies were found in a field near the Belgian-French border.

As Robert Hall reports, the fallen servicemen were laid to rest at a Commonwealth War Graves cemetery near Armentieres.
