After laying a wreath at the service, the Prince of Wales said: "We must remember the heroism and humanity of those on both sides who had to leave behind their families from cities, villages and farms around the world to come here and confront the horrors they did - and in an appalling number of instances, never to see their loved ones again."

Charles, alongside Prince Harry, met relatives of veterans during remembrance events on the Turkish peninsula this morning.

Nearly 60,000 allied troops and 87,000 Turks died in the campaign.

But ownership has now been transferred from the Hadrian's Wall Trust to the North England Civic Trust, which intends to continue restoring and investigating the site, and ultimately to open it as a visitor attraction.
