Ligny: Napoleon's last victory remembered

This week marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, where British and Prussian forces defeated the French and brought to an end Napoleon's ambitions to rule Europe.

Preparations are under way for a re-enactment of the battle - but before that the Battle of Ligny, which took place two days earlier, is being remembered.
