Falklands anniversary: 'Still in public consciousness'

An event has taken place at the Senedd in Cardiff to mark the 35th anniversary of the end of the Falklands War.

The 30-minute ceremony began at 12:30 BST on Wednesday.

It incorporated the Wreath of Respect and honoured 255 British military personnel and three Falkland islanders who died during the conflict.

The event was organised by the assembly's Armed Forces and Cadets cross party group and officers from the 160th Brigade (Brecon).

Lt Col Manny Manfred, who served as a paratrooper in the Falklands conflict, said it was still in the public consciousness.
