World War One: Soldier's family in Somme tunnel death visit

A woman from Wrexham whose great-grandfather died tunnelling under enemy lines in France in World War One is preparing to make history by going down the tunnel where his remains lie.

Lesley Woodbridge has researched the story of William Arthur Lloyd who was a miner from New Broughton, Wrexham, and has visited the Somme before but it is thought she will now be able to stand within a few feet of where he was killed in 1915.

Sarah Easedale reports.
