It was one of the worst civilian disasters of the Great War.

Sixty one people, most of them shoppers, were killed when a single bomb fell on a crowded street in Folkestone.

More died across Kent on the same day in what was the first bombing raid on Britain carried out by aircraft.

One hundred years on from the disaster - and relatives are gathering to mark the tragedy.
