Service to mark end of Battle of the Somme centenary
A service of remembrance will be held in a village in northern France later to mark the 100th anniversary of the final day of the Battle of the Somme.
Some 2,000 guests are due to gather in Thiepval, where a daily service has been held since July to mark the anniversary of every day of the battle.
An international ceremony marked the first day of the battle on 1 July.
More than a million men were killed or wounded on both sides over the course of the 141-day World War One offensive.
