Veterans have gathered in Egypt from around the world to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein.

Ceremonies have taken place to mark the anniversary of the battle, which is considered to be one of the key turning points of World War II.

The campaign did much to restore British morale and is remembered by the Allied forces with pride.
