Lancashire fell silent today as services were held all over the county to remember our war dead.

In Preston, hundreds of people crowded the streets around the Flag Market and war memorial as Fr Timothy Lipscomb, the vicar of Preston, led a service of remembrance.

Representatives of the armed forces, civic leaders and ordinary members of the public of all faiths attended the moving event, especially poignant on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

A parade was led by the Lancastrian Brigade Corps of Drums along with the Brindle Band, followed by the 2nd Battalion Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, the 3rd Medical Regiment and the ​4th Battalion Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.

Similar events also took place in town and villages all over Lancashire, including Leyland, Chorley and Garstang.
