A rustle of wind through the leaves, a chirp of birdsong and the toll of distant church bells were all that could be heard as those who attended the town centre service fell silent at 11am.

Wreaths were laid at the memorial All Saints Church by several dignitaries and representatives including Northampton Mayor Tony Ansell, the Lord Lieutenant, the High Sheriff, Judge Rupert Mayo and MPs Andrew Lewer and Michael Ellis.
