Tower of London's sea of red poppies from the air

Footage taken from the air above the Tower of London shows the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, made up of thousands of ceramic poppies to mark the centenary of the start of World War One.

Each of the flowers represents a British military fatality during the war.

The final poppy will bring the total to 888,246 and will be planted on Armistice Day.

Julian Worricker and Jane Hill report.
