A flag will be raised in King's Lynn to commemorate servicemen and veterans on British Armed Forces Day.

West Norfolk mayor Carol Bower will raise the flag at Tower Gardens on Monday, June 19 at 10.30am.

Mrs Bower said: 'I am honoured to observe British Armed Forces Day in this way as a mark of deep respect for our serving personnel and veterans.

'As always, this event is a poignant reminder of the things that our service personnel have to deal with - whether that is conflict, civil protection, or the aftermath of a natural disaster.

'They undertake their duties with pride and courage and I would like to thank them all for their service. I urge all members of our local community to join us in Tower Gardens to show support.'

Members of the public are invited to join the Royal British Legion and military personnel to show support of serving members of the armed forces and veterans.
