Rock legend Mark Knopfler honoured fallen war heroes as he performed a moving guitar rendition of the Last Post.

Mark, who grew up on Tyneside, dedicated his performance to the 17,000 Northumberland Fusiliers killed in the First World War.

Mark said: "The First World War left its mark on families throughout the UK, and throughout the world."

"It is important to remember the sacrifices made, and to think about why wars happen."

Having gone to school in Blyth, Mark dedicated hisĀ Last Post performance to the Northumberland regiment, which suffered more casualties in the war than any other.
