Lidice memorial service held in Stoke-on-Trent

A service to remember those who died in a village destroyed during World War II has been held in Stoke-on-Trent.
Lidice, in what was Czechoslovakia, was demolished by German forces in September 1942.
Stoke formed strong links with the village after city miners raised the equivalent of £1m to help rebuild the coal mining community after the war.
The memorial service marking the 71st anniversary was held at Stoke Minster on Sunday.
