Canadian anthem played at US ice hockey game

In recognition of the terrorist attack in Ottawa, two US ice hockey teams and their fans sang the Canadian national anthem before their match last night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Philadelphia Flyers at the CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and played the anthem as a mark of respect to Canadians after a day of tragedy in the capital that saw a Canadian soldier shot dead and Parliament stormed by a gunman.

Ice hockey is recognised as the national sport of Canada and, together with teams from the US, the country forms the National Hockey League.

Amputee thanks poppy appeal for artificial limbs

A double-leg amputee has thanked the poppy appeal for sponsoring the centre which fitted him with his artificial limbs.

Clive Smith, who was part of the Royal Engineer Search Team, spoke to Good Morning Britain about how he lost both of his legs after an IED exploded while he was serving in Afghanistan in 2010.

Clive spent five days in critical care in the UK before he was well enough to be transferred to Headley Court.

He said the threat of losing limbs to an IED was "an occupational hazard" but he wrote it off as "a very hard day".

The former bomb disposal soldier explained: "It's humbling to know that the centre has been created because of the public's generous support of the Legion, and the Poppy Appeal in particular. Without it, the Legion would not be able to help guys like me, as well as people who have left service and their families."

The limbs gave him "a little bit of freedom" to allow him to everything he used to do but at "a much slower pace".
