A Beachamwell woman secured a half-day slot as a volunteer planter to help with the installation of the 888,246 ceramic poppies being put in place in the dry moat at the Tower of London in memory of those who died in World War I.

Marketing consultant and mum-of-one Emma Honeybone, 43, of The Street said: “It was probably one of the most emotive things I have ever done. It is quiet while you are working and you get lots of time to think. You become completely immersed in the fact each of these poppies represents a person who died.”
