Thousands turn out across Cambridgeshire to mark Remembrance Day

A delegation from Cambridge's twin city of Heidelberg in Germany joined in a special service to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The event also featured the choir from King's College.

Meanwhile in Godmanchester the granddaughters of a serviceman who fought in the Great War travelled over from Canada to pay their respects.

Two war veterans have been reunited after 40 years not realising they were living just three miles away from one another in Cambridge.

Bob Parks and Herbie Bright fought side-by-side during the Battle for the Rhine and the push into Germany. They also served in Egypt and Palestine.

They lost touch after serving with the Suffolk Regiment - now part of the Royal Anglian Regiment - during World War Two. Bob, known as Bonny, often spoke about his old friend so his wife Patricia decided to track him down.

Liz Summers met them.

Thousands fall silent across the Anglia region to remember those who have fallen

Thousands of people across our region stopped and fell silent today to remember those who served and died in war.

Old and young alike gathered at services that were particularly poignant this year, 100 years since the start of WWI.

There were also reminders of how the Poppy Appeal continues to help those affected by more recent conflicts.

Like many people around the country at 11am on the 11th of November it was a chance for us to think of those who have sacrificed everything in various conflicts around the world.

A chance to think about what they did for us so that we can have the lives we enjoy today.

As was the case on Sunday this was the largest attendance for many years. It was fantastic to see the youngsters here.
