Members of the armed forces will be in Peterborough today as the Mayor signs an armed forces Covenant on behalf of the city.

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Peterborough last year for the Royal Anglians' homecoming parade.

The council says the covenant will help build ties between the city's civilian and Armed Forces communities and enable the city to access funding for projects to strengthen the relationship.
