An installation featuring thousands of ceramic poppies, which were shown outside the Tower of London in 2014, has arrived in Hull.

The Weeping Window display has been erected outside the Maritime Museum, which witnessed the recruitment of men to the Hull Pals in Hull City Hall opposite during the First World War.

It has been taken from the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red exhibition that was created to mark the centenary of the conflict at the London landmark.

It will remain in the city until May 14 as part of Hull's UK City of Culture programme.
