Titanic Centenary Exhibition

A plaque commemorating the captain of the Titanic has been unveiled to mark the centenary of its sinking.

Captain Edward Smith is said to have been born in Hanley in Stoke-on-Trent.

He went down with his ship exactly 100 years ago today.

Meanwhile a descendant of one of the victims of the disaster has been marking the centenary by opening a special exhibition.

Her mother's great uncle was on board as part of his journey from the Midlands to New York, to promote his company.
