Knitted poppies mark North Yorkshire town's Remembrance Day

More than 40,000 knitted poppies have been placed on a Remembrance Day parade route in Thirsk, North Yorkshire.

Thirsk Yarnbombers, who organised the huge poppy knit, said volunteers had sent in knitted and crocheted flowers from all over the world.

The main display is on the side of St Mary's Church in the centre of the town.
