Remembrance Sunday: UK falls silent to commemorate war dead

The UK fell silent in tribute to service personnel who have died during conflicts, as part of the annual Remembrance Sunday service.

A two-minute silence was observed, before the Queen laid the first wreath at the Cenotaph in central London.

The monarch joined more than 10,000 veterans plus political, Commonwealth and religious leaders at the ceremony.

Services have taken place at memorials across the UK, in Commonwealth countries and at military bases abroad.
