WWI tunnellers' memorial unveiled in France


A memorial to a group of World War I soldiers who died on the Western Front in northern France has been unveiled after historians looked into the tale of one Welshman.

Tunneller Thomas Collins from Swansea, died 40ft underground in 1916, aged 22, and a memorial to him and other tunnellers has been unveiled in Givenchy, near where he died.
