A prayer vigil will be held at 7.30pm in Carlisle Cathedral this evening to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Similar events are being held across the region, mainly between 10pm and 11pm to commemorate the exact time the war started.

People are being encouraged to switch off their lights and leave a single candle burning to remember those who died.
