More than 400 people gathered around the war memorial in Fakenham this afternoon for a poignant Remembrance Sunday ceremony.

After a parade, a wreath-laying ceremony and two-minutes' silence, a service was held at Fakenham Parish Church.

RAF veteran William Littler, 85, said: 'I've been very impressed by what they do here in Fakenham - it is well up to standard.

'It's a very good turnout and a great deal of thought has gone into this event.

'It shows how important this day is to the people of Fakenham.'

Music was performed by Fakenham Town Band and amongst those in attendance included veterans, cadet groups, serving members of the armed forces, councillors, members of the police and fire service and representatives from the Royal British Legion.
