Video: Preston town centre falls silent to honour soldiers

This morning saw people gather at the cenotaph on the Flag Market to mark Armistice Day.

At the traditional 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the town centre fell silent to pay its respects to the soldiers of the past.

I’ve captured a few minutes of video of the moving ceremony, and don’t forget that there’ll be a procession in the town centre this Sunday.
