Tower of London poppies attract four million people

By Armistice Day it is expected that almost four million people will have seen the huge ceramic poppy display at the Tower of London that marks the centenary of the start of World War One.

There are almost 900,000 poppies - one for each British or Colonial soldier who died during the Great War.

The BBC's Tim Muffett reports on how the exhibit has allowed families to remember their loved ones and how it has captured the public's imagination.
