The Queen has spoken of the "horrific" scenes British forces faced when they liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp as she visited the notorious site.
At the camp in northern Germany where 70,000 people died from disease, starvation or brutal mistreatment, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh paid their respects by laying a wreath.
With quiet dignity and the minimum of protocol, the royal couple toured the site which was razed to the ground and is now a museum and memorial to those who died during the Second World War.
