Hundreds of people across Kingston, Epsom and Elmbridge paid their respects as the UK fell silent for two minutes on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

Services were held across the area which aimed to honour those who died during the First World War on Remembrance Sunday.

Many residents turned out for the solemn events on Remembrance Sunday, while thousands of marchers passed the Cenotaph, in Whitehall, for a “people’s procession”.

The Prince of Wales led the Royal Family’s tributes to war dead, at the National Service of Remembrance, as he laid a wreath at the monument on the behalf of his mother for the second year in a row.

Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also laid wreaths, and attended alongside Liberal Democrats leader Sir Vince Cable.

Remembrance Sunday marks 100 years since the signing of the treaty which ended the battle on the Western Front of the First World War – at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918.

The traditional two minutes’ silence was observed at 11am before it was marked with the chiming of Big Ben amid ongoing renovation works.
