The stunning light shows are being projected on the Custom House and King's Lynn Minster ahead of today's services of remembrance across West Norfolk.

The special projections, which feature poppies and candles, started on Saturday evening, and will run between 5pm and 10pm until Wednesday (11 November).

The stunning Lynn Lumiere show, a night-time feature on the town's historic buildings this year, has been switched for a limited time to a remembrance-theme.
