Thousands of poppies to fall during Coventry silence

Around 4,000 poppy petals will drop over shoppers at the West Orchards Shopping Centre in Coventry as the centre marks the two-minute silence.

At 11am a bugler will sound the Last Post, and the red petals will be released to fall from the domed roof of the shopping centre.

Members of local churches, community groups, councillors and the Royal British Legion will also be in attendance.
