The nation has paid its respects to those killed in conflict as Britain marked Remembrance Sunday.

The Royal Family led the nation at the traditional wreath-laying service at the Cenotaph in London alongside hundreds of members of the armed forces.

They were joined by political leaders including Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn who took a break from election campaigning to attend the service at the memorial on Whitehall.

Elsewhere, silences were observed across the nation to mark Remembrance Sunday as towns and cities carried out their own commemoration.
