Prince Harry has been viewing an exhibition of photographs of young British servicemen and women who have suffered life-changing injuries on military duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

ITV News Correspondent Neil Connery reports:

Harry, who spent Remembrance Sunday in Kandahar in honour of the fallen, visited 'Wounded: The Legacy of War' by singer turned photographer Bryan Adams at London's Somerset House.

He met Mr Adams and some of the soldiers who are the subject of the photos.

"This book and exhibition was six years in the making and what was fascinating but also uplifting was hearing the stories of the servicemen and women."

– Bryan Adams

The event opens to the public tomorrow while the pictures can also be seen in a book, with proceeds from sales going to veteran support charities.
