A sculpture to commemorate soldiers who were blinded in gas attacks during World War One is being unveiled in Conwy county.

The life-size sculpture, called Victory Over Blindness, is of young men walking off the battlefields - the blind leading the blind.

It is being brought over from the British Legion's National Memorial Arboretum and will go on display at the Blind Veterans UK centre in Llandudno.

A ceremony will be held on Friday.
