Armistice Day was commemorated at ceremonies across East Devon today (Friday, November 11) with towns and villages falling silent to honour the victims of war at 11am.

At Seaton the local branch of the Royal British Legion was joined by civic leaders and members of the public to conduct the traditional Act of Remembrance in Windsor Gardens.

Prayers were led by the vicar, Rev Jeremy Trew, and standards were carried by Jim Patridge-Hogbin for the royal British Legion and Bruce Roberts for the Merchant Navy Association.
