A SEA of poppies and crowds of people flooded the streets to honour the sacrifices made by thousands of soldiers over the last century.

Friday saw the traditional day of remembrance, 11 November, fall on the 11/11/11 this year and silence descended across the region as residents took to the streets to pay their respects to the fallen.

Special parades and services were held in villages and towns throughout the region on Remembrance Sunday, with war veterans and families of the fallen joining those with currently serving friends and relatives to show their respect to our servicemen and women from the Great War to the present day.
