The Norwich Liberal Jewish Community and Norwich Hebrew Congregation held a brief service on Remembrance Sunday in the Jewish section of Earlham cemetery, and prayers were said.

Stuart Goodman, from the liberal community, who lives in St Phillips Road, Norwich, said: 'We have two Jewish communities in Norwich. The Hebrew congregation meets in Earlham Road and the liberal community at the Old Meeting House in Colegate.

'We work together when we can, and we organise a joint service of commemoration for the fallen. We not only commemorate the Jewish dead, but other communities as well.

'We had about a dozen attend, but other members of the community were also at the service at the Norwich war memorial.'
