An exhibition has opened in the Kent town which was known as the gateway to the trenches during World War One.

Millions of soldiers marched through Folkestone along a street now called the Road of Remembrance on their way to fight.

The Step Short exhibition is among a series of WW1 centenary commemorations building up to 4 August, when Prince Harry will unveil the town's new Memorial Arch.
