A series of commemoration events took place in Southampton to mark 100 years since the Titanic left the port on her ill-fated voyage.
The vessel left the docks on the south coast of England at midday on 10 April 1912, six days after she arrived from Belfast.
A service of remembrance was held at the dockside in memory of the 549 people from Southampton who died when the ship sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. More than a third of the victims came from the then town.
During the ceremony a minute's silence was held in honour of all the passengers who lost their lives, followed by a sounding of the ship's whistle as descendants threw flowers on the dock.
More than 600 schoolchildren carried placards remembering the dead on a parade through Southampton city centre, ending at a new Titanic museum.
From Southampton, UTV’s Marc Mallett said the commemorations told “the story of a town that crewed a ship, a ship that sailed to disaster, and the disaster that became a legend.”
