Britain's Queen Elizabeth has concluded her three-day visit to Northern Ireland by attending a ceremony to commemorate the outbreak of World War I.

The guests at the event in Coleraine, Co Derry included members of the British Legion.

It was founded by veterans in the aftermath of World War I and 130 of its members from north and south of the border were among the guests at this morning's ceremony in Coleraine Town Hall.

Several hundred people gathered in the rain to greet the queen and her husband, Prince Philip.

They were presented with gifts including a specially commissioned brooch and a bottle of Coleraine whiskey before leaving for London.
