Greater Manchester will fall silent this morning to pay respect to our war dead.

Churches, schools and offices across the region will observe a two minute silence from 11am, marking the time when Allied Forces declared an end to fighting with Germany in 1918.

In London Prince Harry will lead the nation in remembrance today and will lay a wreath at the National Memorial Arboretum.

The 32-year-old will attend a Service of Remembrance at the Armed Forces Memorial with representatives from the Army, Navy and RAF.
