Falklands War: Candle lit to mark start of conflict

A candle has been lit at the National Arboretum in Stafford to mark the moment Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands 30 years ago.

The candle was lit by Margaret Allen, whose husband was killed in the war, and it will remain alight for 74 days - the length of the conflict.
