North Devon honoured the fallen with Remembrance Day events right across the region today (Sunday).

The national ceremony to honour those who had fallen in armed conflict was held at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, watched by her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip – it was the first time the Queen had watched the event from a balcony, while Prince Charles laid a wreath on behalf of the Royal Family.

As ever the event was attended by political leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In North Devon, there were civic processions in Barnstaple and Bideford, with parades in smaller towns and villages too.

In Combe Martin, around 200 people joined the annual parade up the High Street, led by armed forces veterans but also joined by local schoolchildren and families of those who had served, proudly bearing the medals they had earned.
