Communities across West Norfolk have been taking part in a county-wide initiative this week to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Civic leaders, charity officials and local schoolchildren took part in a ceremony in Lynn’s Tower Gardens yesterday as the Royal British Legion’s Torch of Remembrance arrived in the borough.

The torch was taken to the Western Front this summer, as part of the Legion’s Great Pilgrimage 90 tour.
