Richmond fell silent on Remembrance Sunday as the borough commemorated the fallen at a number of parades and services.

The Mayor of Richmond, Councillor Martin Seymour, attended a service at the war memorial in Whittaker Avenue, Richmond where a parade made its way to Old Deer Park.

Coun Seymour said: "Remembrance Sunday has always been important to me.

"By remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, we can enjoy our freedom.

"We need to ensure future generations never forget."
