Girlguiding UK's Sue Lomas explains why 8,000 young women in Manchester are among those celebrating the centenary of Guides in the UK.

Brownies, Rainbows and Guides have gathered in Heaton Park to mark the anniversary.

Ms Lomas, who is the organisation's commissioner for the North West, told the BBC that guiding is just as relevant now as it was 100 years ago.
