Southampton's lost Titanic generation

A minutes silence has been observed in Southampton to remember people from the city who died on the Titanic.

More than 540 of the 1,500 people who died in the Titanic sinking were from the port of Southampton.

A recording of the ship's whistle was played at the docks to mark the exact moment, 100 years ago, the liner set sail on her fateful maiden voyage.

Robert Hall reports.
