One million poppy petals have been dropped from the Main Dome at Manchester's Trafford Centre to mark the centenary of the First World War.
The shopping centre was filled with the petals, each one representing one of the million plus people lost in the war.
Richard Paxton, general manager of Trafford Centre, said:
“We’ve worked with local schools to plant thousands of poppies all around the centre, and we’ve teamed up with the Royal British Legion to help support their fund-raising drive at this most important time."
To mark the centenary of the First World War we asked you to send in pictures of your loved ones who were involved.
