The Midlands marks 100 years since end of World War One

The country fell silent today to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Services were held across the Midlands including in Birmingham and at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, to honour those who have given their lives in service.

Events have been taking place across the UK and Europe to mark the centenary of the Armistice, when the treaty was signed which ended the battle on the Western Front at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
