Swindon town centre was brought to a virtual stand still this morning to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War.

A two minute silence was held at the Cenotaph in Regent Street, and for the first time in Wharf Green, where hundreds of shoppers, workers and passers by of all ages joined war veterans and current servicemen in paying their respects.
An emotional day for all those who gathered to remember past friends and relatives who have died in conflicts in the last 90 years.
One onlooker summed up the thoughts of many…
"I always make a special effort to stop for the two minute silence," commented shopper Adam Ridley, "my grandfather served in World War Two and it's crucial we remember what they did for the country."
