WW1 lessons 'must be learned' says Wales' Carwyn Jones

As events across Wales are held to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War One, Wales' first minister said it was important to remember those who died.

Carwyn Jones also said lessons must be learned from why the war started so it does not happen again.

Britain declared war with Germany at 23:00 BST on 4 August, 1914.

Commemorations will be led by a national service of remembrance at Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff, at 22:00 BST, marking the start of four years of events in Wales.

People are encouraged to switch lights out between 22:00 and 23:00 BST, with candlelit vigils being planned.
