Armistice day memorials

It has been a day to honour those who sacrificed their lives for their country - as a two minute silence was held to mark Armistice Day.

It followed parades and acts of remembrance at services yesterday in which thousands of people paused to reflect on those killed and injured in a century of conflicts.

The young and old, veterans of previous wars - and families whose loved ones are still serving in Afghanistan gathered at memorials in communities across our region, as Jon Hill reports.
