More than 10,000 veterans and civilians have joined members of the Royal Family and Commonwealth leaders for the annual Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London.

A two-minute silence was observed, before the Queen laid the first wreath.

Services also took place at memorials across the UK, in Commonwealth countries and at military bases abroad.
