Socially distanced commemorations have been held across the UK, as the nation honoured its war dead on Armistice Day.

A two-minute silence was observed at 11am to mark the ending of the First World War on November 11 1918.

Services of remembrance are usually held at churches, war memorials and cenotaphs, but under coronavirus restrictions numbers were limited with those attending asked to socially distance.
