Student's campaign for wall of remembrance at Cambridgeshire school

A special 'wall of remembrance' has been unveiled at a Cambridgeshire school after a year of fundraising organised by a student.

Edward Ouzman from Witchford Village College near Ely began his campaign this time last year and even helped to build the wall in his spare time.

The memorial in the school grounds has now been officially unveiled as part of school's Remembrance Day service.
