WW1 practice battlefield 'found' in Hampshire

A replica World War One battlefield where soldiers trained in trench warfare before being sent to the front has been 'discovered' in Hampshire.

Two sets of opposing trench systems, with a no man's land between them, were found beneath heathland at a Ministry of Defence site in Gosport.

Historians say it could shed light on what life was like on the home front.

Robert Hall reports.
