Veterans, serving members of the armed forces and members of the public gathered at the Cenotaph in Regent Circus to honour those who gave their lives in conflict.

The national two-minute silence at 11am on November 11th is the 100th time that Armistice Day - the annual act of remembrance - has been held since it was introduced in 1919 to honour the fallen in the Great War.
