5 August 2014 Last updated at 09:34 BST

Lights have been turned out across the country to mark the centenary of Britain's entry into World War One.

It is part of the 14-18 Now Lights Out commemoration, supported by the Royal British Legion.

Worshippers at the Balaji Hindu temple in Tividale in the West Midlands - one of the largest in Europe - lit a candle to remember those who died during the conflict.

About 1.5 million Indians fought for the British in WW1 and some 75,000 died.

The chairman of the temple said a lone candle symbolised a commitment to world peace.
