David Cameron stopped to pay tribute to Britain's war dead today as he arrived in France for the G8 summit.

The Prime Minister laid a wreath at Tourgeville Military Cemetery, where 210 Commonwealth soldiers from the First World War and 13 from the Second World War have their graves.

He was shown around the site, which adjoins a military hospital, by David Bennett from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Mr Cameron placed a wreath at the memorial with the signed message: "You gave your lives so we could live in freedom and so Europe was free from tyranny. We will never forget your service and sacrifice."
