100 years since Titanic set sail

It's 100 years since the Titanic set sail from Southampton on its famous journey to New York.

More than 1,500 of the ship's crew and passengers died when it hit an iceberg and sank, five days into its trip across the Atlantic.

It was the biggest, fastest and most luxurious passenger ship of the time.

Many of the cruise liner's staff were from the city of Southampton, where a special ceremony took place.
