    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has admitted mistakes were made - both before and after last year's attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.

    Speaking on the anniversary of the truck attack that killed 11 people - she said both security and victim support were lacking.

    But relatives of the victims still feel Merkel should be doing more.
