Around a thousand people lined Church Street in Oswestry on Remembrance Sunday to pay their respects to the town's war dead.

The service was led by Reverend Harvey Gibbons, with Oswestry town mayor Councillor John Price in attendance, and included hundreds of veterans, cadets and assorted members of groups such as Rainbows, St John's Ambulance and the Scouts.

Wreaths were laid at the Memorial Gates at Cae Glas Park by representatives from each of the Armed Forces, plus emergency services across Oswestry, with a lone bugler's excellent rendition of 'The Last Post' before an impeccably-observed two minute silence from those in attendance.

Cllr Price was joined by mayoress Cllr Joyce Barrow while prayers were read out from veterans.
