    BBC Local Live, Sheffield

    Three-hundred trees to honour war veterans are to be planted in Sheffield.

    They'll go in parks across the city and the council is asking people for ideas about exactly where they should go and how they should look.

    The trees will be planted and memorialised in time for the 2018 centenary which marks the end of World War One.
