Armed forces celebrations in York

British Legion Standard Bearers prepare to begin a service at York Minster

Armed Forces Day was officially yesterday - but many towns and cities in our region have made a weekend of the celebrations.

Today, there was a service featuring the Royal British Legion flagbearers, a parade down Coney Street, to Parliament Street where a salute took place, and there will be a whole host of entertainment in St Sampson's Square this afternoon.

This features the Band of The Yorkshire Regiment, the Military Wives Choir, a WWI cinema and even paintballing.
