The Duchess of Cornwall has joined the fight against thieves who steal war memorials.

She's helped launch a campaign to spray the metal plaques with so-called "SmartWater", which is invisible to the naked eye, but has unique markers to identify things if they're stolen.

The launch was at the Royal Artillery Memorial on Hyde Park Corner.

Our reporter Phil Bayles was there.
