Stone laid to honour soldier's bravery

One hundred years ago, a 27-year-old soldier from Lanarkshire carried out the incredible rescue of a comrade on a battlefied in France.

The man he saved was an officer from his own town of Carluke.

His commanding officer said there had been no braver deed in the history of the British Army, and Lance Corporal William Angus was awarded a Victoria Cross.

Now a commemorative stone has been unveiled in his honour. Aileen Clarke reports.
