A Nottingham artist has created an unusual portrait of the Queen by weaving together names taken from a war memorial in Ilkeston in Derbyshire.
Each individual name was machine woven onto tape and assembled into a portrait using just dressmaker pins.
Joy Pitts' portrait was inspired by the Queen's festive message last year, which recalled the Christmas Truce of 1914.
The portrait is designed to pay tribute both to World War One servicemen and to the Queen’s sixty-three year reign and dedication to the armed forces.
Demolition work will get underway today of the old Ilkeston train station, 50 years after it closed.
It will make way for a new one costing £6.5 million.
Ilkeston has often been described as the largest town in England without a train station after Dr Beeching, a former Chairman of British Railways, brought out a report in the 1960s, which led to thousands of stations and many railways closing down.
The new station will have two platforms, automated ticket machines, a 150-space car park and a taxi rank.
It will also service the Nottingham to Leeds line.
