Remembrance Day will be marked across Hertfordshire to honour veterans and their sacrifices.

The nation will hold a two-minute silence on Sunday (November 10) to commemorate soldiers who died in battle.

The memorial day has been held since the end of World War One.

Roads will be closed as parades and services, usually organised by the Royal British Legion, take place in communities across the county.
