Thousands of letters written to World War One's Unknown Soldier

Help

More than 1,300 students have come together at Bohunt School in Hampshire to pay tribute to soldiers who died in World War One.

Every student from the school, including BBC News School Reporters Ellie, Harry, Chloe, Lisa, Ruxi, Katherine, Aaron, Henry and Eleanor, together with pupils from local primary schools each wrote a letter to the Unknown Soldier, who is represented by a statue at London's Paddington Station. They then held them all up to form the petals of a giant poppy.

The BBC's Robert Hall reports for the Six O'Clock News.
