'Thankful Village' receives commemorative WWI plaque

A Welsh village that didn't lose a single soldier in World War One has held a ceremony recognising their contribution to the war effort.

Colwinston in the Vale of Glamorgan is one of three villages in Wales and 51 across the UK whose soldiers all returned home.

They are taking part in the 'Thankful Villages Run' - a nine-day charity ride around the communities.
