EVENTS are taking place across the world to mark exactly 100 years since the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank, claiming more than 1,500 lives.

The anniversary has taken on an international character, with events commemorating the tragedy in Britain, Canada, Ireland and the United States.

A particularly poignant memorial is being held in Southampton, the Titanic's port of departure and the home town of about 500 of the victims.

In Belfast, the city where the ship was built, they are opening a memorial garden with names of those who perished in the disaster.

Many Britons can trace relatives who were on the ship or were otherwise touched by the tragedy.
