Services were held by the Peterborough war memorial in Bridge Street on both Saturday and Sunday, while on Sunday there was also a service at Peterborough Cathedral.

Veterans, cadets and dignitaries, including the Mayor of Peterborough cllr John Fox, paraded through the city ahead of the silence. Poppy wreaths were also laid.

But it was not just at the civic events where tributes were paid. Many schools across Peterborough held special assemblies for pupils and staff to pay their respects.

At William de Yaxley Primary School, pupils performed poetry and read prayers.
