The remains of 250 World War I soldiers, including several Scots, who were killed in the 1916 Battle of Fromelles have now been recovered.

They will be reburied with full military honours at a new cemetery close to the site in northern France.

Work to recover the British and Australian soldiers buried there by German forces, began in 2008.

The battle, on 19 July 1916, was the first major one on the Western Front involving British and Australian troops.
