A military parade, field gun display and parachute display are among events being held to mark North Wales Armed Forces Day in Flintshire.

The event, at Deeside College, Connah's Quay, is designed to allow local communities show support for the UK's armed forces.

The celebrations, which also include an RAF flypast, started at 11:00 BST on Saturday and will last until 18:00 BST.

It is being held a week ahead of a UK-wide Armed Forces Day next Saturday.
