UK Observes Armistice Day

Millions of people across the UK today observed a two-minute silence to mark Armistice Day.

Ceremonies took place across the nation to honour all who have fallen since the First World War, including the 110 servicemen killed in Afghanistan in the past year.

In London, a service was held at the Cenotaph memorial for the 90th time.

Prime Minister David Cameron laid a wreath at the site of the Army’s bloodiest battle since the end of WWII – at the Imjin River in South Korea.
