Communities around the UK suffered the devastating impact of World War One, which began 100 years ago.

In the Lincolnshire village of Friesthorpe, one mother and father lost five of their eight sons.

They became known as the Beechey Boys and now a play depicting their story is to be performed at the local church in their honour.

Robert Hall reports.
