Armistice Day marked across the UK
At the 11:00am this morning people across the UK held two minutes silence in respect of those who have died in conflict.
Last year the traditional annual cenotaph service in Westminster and other usual public services were cancelled due to Covid guidelines.
The time marks 103 years since the formalising of the armistice agreement which concluded the First World War.
Politicians, faith leaders and other public figures have honoured the solemn occasion throughout the morning.
Today, we say thank you to everyone who has served, and continues to serve, in our armed forces.

On the 'eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month' in 1918 the Armistice was signed.
