Worthing Town Hall's knitted poppy waterfall and Garden of Remembrance provided the backdrop to an emotional morning as a huge crowd paid tribute to the fallen.

Armed service personnel past and present were joined by Worthing Mayor Paul Baker, the Lord Lieutenant and other dignitaries for a two minutes' silence, wreath laying, lowering of the flags to half mast and a march past.

Armistice Day commemorations have been taking place across Worthing in the build-up to the centenary, as well as on Sunday itself.
