Cambridge fell silent on Remembrance Sunday to honour the sacrifices of servicemen and women, as the city marked 100 years since Armistice Day.

Hundreds attended a Service of Remembrance at the War Memorial in Hills Road where a two-minute silence at 11am marked the end of First World War on the 11th hour of November 11, 1918.

The service was led by Padre Jonathan Knight from the Cambridge Royal British Legion.

A Service of Remembrance was also held at Great St Mary’s Church which included an address from the former chief of the general staff, Lord Dannatt.
