GALLERY: March remembers the fallen in Armistice Day Remembrance service

DESPITE being held five minutes early, hundreds turned out in March town centre to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict.

March town centre came to a standstill at 10.45am for the Armistice Day Remembrance silence at the war memorial in Broad Street.

A parade including members of March Town Council, Councillor Michael Humphrey, chairman of Fenland District Council, and war veterans made their way from Grays Lane to the memorial for the service, which was held slightly earlier than 11am following a chemical spill at Qualitetch in Century Way, March.

Police asked for the service to be held earlier than usual to make resources available to respond to the chemical incident.

Services took place across Fenland this morning, with more planned throughout the weekend. A list of Remembrance Sunday services can be found by clicking the Related Link at the top of this page.
