Queen and Prince Philip visits Tower of London poppy garden

Members of the Royal Family have paid tribute to World War One personnel at a Tower of London art installation featuring thousands of ceramic poppies.

The Queen laid a wreath at the Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red exhibit, where each poppy commemorates a fallen WW1 serviceman and woman.

The last poppy will be placed on Armistice Day.
