Armistice Day commemorations at National Memorial Arboretum

A service today will mark the end of the First World War Credit: PA

The end of the First World War will be marked with a Remembrance Service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire today.

The Princess Royal will attend the service within the walls of the Armed Forces Memorial in which there will be a two minute silence at 11am.

The Memorial is designed in such a way that a shaft of sunlight should hit the bronze wreath sculpture in the centre just as the silence is observed.

Services will be held across the region to mark the end of fighting on the Western Front in 1918.
