Today marks the 30th anniversary of the invasion of the Falkland Islands. The war that followed lasted 74 days and cost just over 900 British and Argentinian lives. It ended with the liberation of the islands but it also left many survivors with memories that would change their lives forever.
Among them Ian Winnard and Andy Bancroft, who both served with Second Battalion the Parachute Regiment. Watch the video to hear some of their experiences. More to come on tonight's Granada Reports.
