Ligny: Marching into battle to mark bicentenary

British and Prussian forces defeated the French at the Battle of Waterloo 200 years ago.

It brought to an end the rule of Napoleon - and set the balance of power in Europe for the next century.

The latest event to mark the anniversary was the re-enactment of the Battle of Ligny - Napoleon's very last victory.
