Channel Islands mark Remembrance Sunday with two minutes silence

Events have taken place across the Channel Islands to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Across the islands, a two minute silence was observed to reflect on the lives of those killed in the First and Second World Wars and other conflicts around the world.

For the first time, representatives from across the islands also attended a national memorial ceremony at the Cenotaph in London, where Prince Charles laid a wreath on behalf of The Queen.
