Prince Harry has launched a new sporting event for injured British servicemen after being inspired by a similar event in the US.

The prince unveiled the Invictus Games alongside Boris Johnson and Defence Secretary Philip Hammond at the Olympic Park in east London.

William and Harry's visit well received in Datchet

William and Harry's visit to flood-hit Datchet has "gone down very well", according to the village's parish clerk.

"They have been in Datchet and the area and I think it's gone down very well. That is my assessment.

"They were very natural. To be honest, they could have walked in among people here and nobody would have recognised them looking at the way they were dressed.

"They came into our parish office and it took most of us a few minutes to realise they were there. They were particularly interested in talking to the troops."
