Calls to rededicate a memorial to honour Lord Kitchener

In 1916 one of the key figures in the First World War, Lord Kitchener, set off in stormy seas from Orkney to negotiate with the Tsar of Russia.

But Kitchener never made it - he was killed when his vessel struck a mine and sank.

The BBC's Scotland Correspondent James Cook reports.
