A charity which aims to take two pupils from every UK school to the Nazi death camp Auschwitz in Poland has marked its 100th trip.

The pupils toured the concentration camp as part of a government-funded scheme run by the Holocaust Educational Trust, accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

It was the largest site for the mass murder of Jews during World War II.
