Great to be at @PortsmouthPort to see veterans disembark the @PoppyLegion cruise ship. They’ll be sat watching the Queen, @realDonaldTrump and other dignitaries in Southsea Common, but in my mind are the real VIPs in #Portsmouth today. @GMB #Dday75
Thanks to the team @PortsmouthPort and @BrittanyFerries for their help this morning. Would loved to have stayed longer but we’re now off to Normandy for more D-Day filming.

We’re now crossing the channel, heading to Normandy. Onboard are a number of ‘re enactors’, complete with uniforms and vehicles. The view leaving Portsmouth hasn’t changed too much in 75 years - for many unfortunate souls back then it was their last sight of England. #DDay75 @GMB

Beautiful morning in #Portsmouth ahead of #DDay75 commemorations. The sacrifice of so many remembered in a service on Southsea Common. Hundreds of veterans will be joined by the Queen, @realDonaldTrump and others. Public will have to watch on screens behind security barriers.
Was an honour to meet Harold Smithard - now 94. As a 19 year old Able Seaman he was on one of the first troop carriers to arrive on the Normandy coast. He doesn’t want Presidents or Prime Ministers at today’s event - says they’ve turned it into a political stunt.
Leader of Portsmouth City Council @geraldvjuk is keen the spotlight falls on veterans and not high profile guests. He wanted the public to be able to meet and greet the veterans today. The city is hosting more #DDay75 events this week where that should be possible.
