Hyndburn fell silent at at 11am today to pay its respects to those who lost their lives fighting for their country.

A two-minute silence was observed throughout the borough to mark the moment the First World War ended 92 years ago. This included outside Accrington Town Hall, where the
council leader, mayor and councillors were joined by members of the Royal British Legion.

Council leader Peter Britcliffe said: "There were quite a few people there, and the silence was impeccably observed."

A silence was also observed at Oswaldtwistle war memorial, which has recently been completed with the names of fallen soldiers from the Second World and Korean wars, and at the cenotaph in Clayton-le-Moors.

A host of Remembrance Sunday events are taking place throughout the borough on Sunday.
