People who have relatives buried or commemorated at the Western Front battlefields of the First World War have been invited to contact a school.

A group of year nine pupils from Holy Family Catholic School, Keighley, were due to travel to the Ypres and Somme today. Their group leader, Emma Salisbury, said she would like to hear from people with family who were killed in these locations during the First World War.

The pupils will offer prayers and leave poppies at the graves on behalf of relatives. People can e-mail details, including the name, regiment and cemetery, to hfcschool@holyfamily.ngfl.ac.uk and mark messages for the attention of Emma Salisbury.
