One of the most devastating days in British war history will be marked this Friday in Welshpool.

A commemorative service for the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme will take place at the War Memorial at St Mary's Church.

The service starts at 5.30pm and everyone is welcome to attend with members of the public invited to light a candle.

The service has been organised by the Welshpool & District Branch of the Royal British Legion.

British forces lost nearly 60,000 men alone during the day in an offensive against German frontlines in France.
