The UK has been paying its respects to the thousands of soldiers killed in the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago.
A night-long vigil was held across Britain and at the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, which towers over the rolling Picardy fields where so many fell.
The Queen launched the vigils on Thursday at a Westminster Abbey ceremony, which closed with a piper performing next to the Grave of the Unknown Solider.
In London, people lined Parliament Square where the roar of guns was followed by the two-minute reflection.
The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery were present, having been at Thiepval on Thursday night.
In Edinburgh, a two-minute silence was held at Scotland's National War Memorial, with descendants of some of those who died at the Somme in attendance.
People huddled under trees and umbrellas paused from their journeys or duties to stand quietly.
The British Army suffered almost 60,000 casualties on the first day alone and more than a million men would be killed or wounded on both sides over the course of the 141-day offensive.
