Around 2,000 people lined the streets of Bury this morning, Sunday, to pay their respects to fallen heroes.

Despite the rainy conditions, many turned out for the Remembrance Sunday service to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

A procession involving a number of borough organisations departed from the town hall at 10.30am before making its way along Knowsley Street, Haymarket Street and Market Street to the Cenotaph at Bury Parish Church.

A two-minute silence was then observed at 11am.

A service of remembrance was then held at the parish church.
