A poignant Armistice Day commemoration took place in Alnwick this morning.

A good crowd came together at the cenotaph in Alnwick, with people of all ages paying their respects during a two-minutes' silence. Pupils from the town's St Paul's Federation of Schools brought along tributes, which included specially-made poppies.

It was one of a number of commemorations taking place throughout north Northumberland, with people gathering at war memorials in towns and villages at 11am to honour those who have lost their lives fighting for their country.
