This morning the BBC presents full coverage of the events marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.

Huw Edwards acts as host as we follow events at Southsea Common, Portsmouth, where both the Queen and the US President will be attending events marking the occasion, which will also be observed by over 300 veterans.

During the event there will be flypasts by Spitfires and the Red Awards, as well as interviews with veterans, historians and members of the public.

D-Day 75 is on BBC One at 09.15.
