Hundreds turned out in Peterborough on Remembrance Sunday – to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict. In the evening Peterborough Cathedral reflected the occasion with a moving, and colourful, tribute.

Peterborough City Council, in conjunction with the Peterborough Branch of the Royal British Legion, commemorated the Armistice Two Minute Silence on Saturday
And of course today’s Remembrance Sunday Silence and Wreath Laying at the War Memorial outside the Town Hall in Bridge Street.
The Remembrance Sunday service at the War Memorial began today, 15 minutes before the 11am two-minute silence.
The procession at the war memorial was relayed on a large screen in Cathedral Square, while the silence and wreath laying service were streamed on the Peterborough City Council YouTube channel.
Cllr Nick Sandford, Mayor of Peterborough, said: “Remembrance Day gives us all an opportunity to pay our respects and give thanks to all those who have been killed or injured in the service of their country in conflicts both recent and in the past.”
