Armistice Day was honoured this morning (Monday) in Melton with a service outside the town’s Royal British Legion headquarters in Thorpe End.

Prayers were said by the Rev James Skinner and the Last Post was sounded by Phil Hardy after a minute’s silence was held at 11am - the time hostilities ceased on November 11, 1918, to mark the end of the First World War.
