In Pictures: Nation falls silent to mark Remembrance Sunday

People across the country have fallen silent in tribute to Britain’s war dead.

Public commemorations for Remembrance Sunday were scaled back due to the coronavirus pandemic, with social-distancing measures in place.

The annual service at the Cenotaph in London went ahead, with dignitaries and veterans attending, although the public were excluded.

People were instead encouraged to observe the two-minute silence at home.
