Drone tour of Tower of London poppies

A remote controlled drone has captured close-up images of the ceramic poppy installation at the Tower of London.

The footage was released by Historic Royal Palaces, as part of the Armistice Day commemorations.

It gives an aerial view of the 888,264 poppies that encircle the tower. They have been viewed by almost five million people since the installation was launched four months ago.
