D-Day: Charles joins tributes to Pegasus Bridge gliders

The Prince of Wales joined commemorations today at Pegasus Bridge - a crucial first point of attack at the beginning of the D-Day landings.

A ceremony in honour of that night recognised the almost 200 men that packed into wooden gliders and flew into the unknown on 5 June 1944.
