Northampton town centre fell silent this weekend to mark a moment of reflection for Remembrance Sunday.

Monday, 11th November 2019, 11:00 am

Hundreds of onlookers fell quiet as the bells of Alll Saints Church marked 11am while a parade made up of Northamptonshire's veterans, regiments and cadet forces stood at ease by the war memorial.Many shops across the town also closed their doors in time for the two minute's silence to mark the moment of reflection in memory of the lives lost to war.Father Oliver Coss, rector of All Saints Church, said: "It was a beautiful day. The sun shone on us at the moment of the two minute's silence."It was a wonderful turn out for this year and a rare moment of oneness to share with people at what can feel like such a divisive time."It's so nice that everyone can still come together for a moment of remembrance."
