Preparing to commemorate Ulster soldiers

The Battle of the Somme claimed tens of thousands of lives - many of them from the 36th Ulster Division.

A special commemorative service will take place on the battlefield in July.

Mervyn Jess visited the Somme in northern France and the memorial tower built to honour those who died in one of the bloodiest battles of the First World War.
