In line with the national restrictions put in place by the Government, Peterborough City Council, in conjunction with the Peterborough Branch of the Royal British Legion and Peterborough Cathedral, held an invite-only wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial on Bridge Street following the national two-minute silence, then the Remembrance Service was live streamed from the Cathedral at 11.30am.

The Mayor of Peterborough Councillor Gul Nawaz said: “This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War so it is important that despite the situation we find ourselves in, we continue to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”
