World War One: Centenary remembrance events across Wales

One hundred years since the outbreak of World War One, remembrance services have been held across Wales to honour members of the armed forces.

The national service took place at the Welsh National War Memorial in Cardiff with others at Bangor, Wrexham, Welshpool, Swansea and elsewhere.

A Welsh national field of remembrance with 10,000 wooden crosses has also been opened at Cardiff Castle.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said this year's services were particularly poignant because of the World War One centenary.
