St Magnus church Kirkwall

David Cameron, Nicola Sturgeon and Princess Anne have joined descendants of those who fought at the battle of Jutland for a centenary service to remember the thousands who died in the largest naval battle of the first world war.

British and German military bands played and crowds lined the street as the British prime minister arrived at St Magnus Cathedral on Orkney, with Scotland’s first minister.

It is 100 years to the day since British and German ships engaged in a 36-hour conflict off the coast of Denmark, that led to devastating losses and changed the course of the war.
