Region pays respect to armed forces fallen

The region paused at 11 o clock this morning (Monday) to remember those who have laid down their lives for their country. The anniversary of the World War One armistice, which happened 95 years ago, was marked with a two minute silence.

People across the North East and North Yorkshire stopped and paid their respects at Cenotaphs at work and in schools. See Julie Harrison's full report here.
