Prince Charles and Gordon Brown mark 65th anniversary of the D-Day landings





Prince Charles and Gordon Brown have joined presidents Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy to take part in commemorations of the 65th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Both men this morning attended a service of remembrance at the Bayeux Cathedral in honour of those who fought and died on June 6 1944, when some 150,000 allied troops landed in occupied France in an offensive which would end World War II in Europe.

They then gathered at the Franco American-led remembrance service set amidst the graves of thousands of dead US servicemen in Colleville-sur-Mer in Normandy, France.
