Family retrace steps of Flodden ancestors

Events to mark the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden are continuing this week.

More than 14,000 Scottish and English soldiers died in the battle at Branxton in Northumberland on 9th September 1513.

For one family, the anniversary has particular significance because they're descended from a Scottish Borders clan which was virtually wiped out in the battle. At this year's gathering, the Elliot's retraced the footsteps of their ancestors.
