Thousands of people in Bristol have honoured those who lost their lives in wars and conflicts.

The main Remembrance Day Parade and Service was at the Bristol Cenotaph, with road closures in place in the city centre from 1000 GMT until 1200 GMT.

Services and parades were held throughout the city, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset.

They included a parade from the Bishopsworth Royal British Legion club.

A service then took place in the club's memorial garden.

This year, a special wreath was laid at the Cenotaph to honour the missing 15 Bristolians who fell at Fromelles in Northern France in 1916.

It also honoured 5,553 Australian and 1,500 British soldiers who lost their lives in the battle.
