Grandson of a Southsea D-Day veteran and Labour candidate for Portsmouth South Stephen Morgan said: 

“Today and tomorrow we will mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day providing an opportunity for all of us to pay tribute to those whose incredible courage and sacrifice provided the freedom and peace we enjoy today.

“Today will be a special day for our city and country and I am incredibly proud to have helped ensure the national commemoration is rightfully taking place here in Portsmouth where so many D-Day veterans including my late grandfather James, sailed from 80 years ago. 

“These commemorations provide us with a vital opportunity to ensure their legacy lives on in future generations. I look forward to welcoming everyone in attendance including King Charles, Queen Camilla and veterans from across the country to our great city.”
