Newly cast commemorative bells ring out for first time

Eight bells have been rung in Ypres in remembrance of servicemen who died near the Belgium town during World War One.

St George's Memorial Church was built in 1927 to honour the dead. However, funds ran out before the bells were fitted.

Loughborough's John Taylor & Co made the new bells, which arrived in Ypres in August on two WW1-era lorries.
