The celebrations in France for the 75th anniversary of the The Normandy landings will continue throughout the day. French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May have opened a memorial to commemorate the 22,442 British troops who died there in the summer of 1944. It is located in Ver-sur-Mer in the Calvados department and Normandy region of north-western France. Remembrance will also be given to the US military cemetery which President Donald Trump will attend.

"Mrs May told the ceremony that she was humbled to be able to mark the moment with veterans, who belonged to a "very special generation".
"A generation whose unconquerable spirit shaped the post-war world. They didn't boast. They didn't fuss. They served," she said.", quoted by BBC
