WW1 Weeping Window poppies draw 5,000 visitors in two days

Nearly 5,000 people have seen an installation marking the 100th anniversary of World War One since it opened at Caernarfon Castle on Tuesday.

The sculpture consisting of thousands of ceramic red poppies has gone on show at its first location in Wales.

The Weeping Window was part of an installation displayed at the Tower of London in 2014 to mark British and Commonwealth deaths in the war.

It is on public display at Caernarfon Castle, Gwynedd, as part of a six week UK-wide tour.

Cadw, which filmed drone footage of the installation, estimated 5,000 people visited in the first two days.
