A World War One memorial that will eventually showcase almost 900,000 ceramic poppies has been unveiled at the Tower of London.

A team of 50 people at Paul Cummins Ceramics in Derby have been working since January to produce the flowers.

The display is being planted at the Tower of London.

Each poppy commemorates the life of a fallen British or Colonial soldier.

Geeta Pendse went to see the poppies being put together.
