100 year anniversary of the Battle of Jutland

Ceremonies have been taking place across the South marking a century since one of the deadliest naval battles ever fought.

100 years ago to the day, 250 British and German ships carrying 100,000 sailors were involved in the Battle of Jutland in the North Sea off Denmark.

Today in Southsea 100 sailors led by the Collingwood band of the Royal Marines marched to the naval war memorial on the common where a ceremony paid tribute to the thousands of men from the city who lost their lives.

Some of their relatives have also been remembering by loaning family artefacts to a new exhibition about the battle. Richard Jones has been speaking to some of them.
