A thirteen-year-old army cadet from Reading Blue Coat School has laid the final poppy at the Tower of London. Cadet Harry Hayes was watched by thousands of people gathered at the landmark, and by many more watching on television sets across the country.
The schoolboy placed the last ceramic poppy at the tower's art installation which commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the start of World War One. Each of the 888,246 ceramic flowers represents a British or colonial war death during the 1914 - 1918 conflict.

The Thames Valley fell silent today to mark Armistice Day - on the 11th hour of the 11th day.
Ceremonies took place at military bases and in schools, churches and shopping centres.
