People paid their respects to those killed while serving their country at Remembrance Sunday parades and services.

This year’s date had particular significance, with 2014 marking 100 years since the start of the First World War.

In Stamford, the Royal British Legion and representatives from the three armed forces marched along Broad Street before wreaths were laid at the war memorial in front of Browne’s Hospital.

Respects were paid in the Memorial Gardens in Bourne, alongside the memorial stones installed by Bourne United Charities in September.

In Oakham dignitaries marched through the town before laying wreaths, and at war memorials around the area the minute’s silence was observed.
