David Cameron highlighted the ongoing defence and diplomatic co-operation between the UK and France as he joined world leaders marking the anniversary of the "extraordinary sacrifices" of D-Day.

The Prime Minister said the British and French had faced a common enemy in 1944 but the two nations remained important allies 70 years on, with personnel from both countries taking part in recent operations in Afghanistan, Libya and Mali.
