Thousands of people have turned out to pay tribute to those killed in conflicts on remembrance Sunday. Today marks 100 years since the battle of the Somme.

A woman from Warrington has created a special display at her small parish of St Cross in Appleton Thorn. Barbara Johnson lost her Great Uncle in the battle and although not much is known about him she's sewn two thousand poppies onto a net over the pulpit after being inspired by displays in London.
