Wartime miners' memorial
Wartime miners' memorial to be unveiled
A memorial will be dedicated to thousands of men, known as the Bevin Boys, who worked in British coal mines during the Second World War.
The memorial at the National Arboretum, Staffordshire, is designed by Harry Parkes, a former Bevin Boy, and features four blocks of Kilkenny limestone.
One features an engraving of the emblem of the Memorial Campaign along with the words: "We also served 1943 - 1948".
Miners trapped in cave-in for almost a week
Nine workers trapped inside since last Thursday have been rescued from the Cabezo de Negro mine in Peru.
The cave-in was caused by an explosion they set off. The mine is one of many "informal" and unregulated mines dotted across the country.
The rescue mission was witnessed by President Ollanta Humala who urged "informal" companies to register their workers and improve safety measures.
Nine miners rescued in Peru
Nine miners have been rescued after spending five days trapped in a collapsed gold and copper mine in Peru.
The men have been stuck about 656 feet below the ground since last Thursday.
Pariona (pictured above) was the first miner to be rescued from the mine outside Cabeza de Negro. He was greeted by the President of Peru, Ollanta Humala who said:
"All of them are healthy but obviously dehydrated and dizzy. They need to get used to the sun still, that's why they are wearing sunglasses."
