Folkestone marked this year’s curtailed Remembrance Sunday ceremonies with very reduced numbers and only attending a number of events throughout the day.

Events held this year also marked the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two.

Later at around 3pm, a further wreath laying and two minutes silence was held by such as the Merchant Navy, with former Mayor Cllr Jackie Meade, attending alongside some others.

Wreaths were also laid beside the WW1 memorial Arch and the RAF memorial nearby.
