Falkland Islands mark end of 1982 war with Argentina

The Falkland Islands will mark 30 years since the end of the war with Argentina later, with services at Port Stanley's cathedral and Liberation Monument.

Britain liberated the UK territory from Argentinian occupation on 14 June 1982.

David Cameron issued a message saying Britain's support for the islands had "not wavered in the last 30 years and it will not in the years ahead".

Argentina claims sovereignty over the islands and has taken out UK adverts urging negotiations on their future.
