PEOPLE across the area fell silent this morning (Sunday) to pay their respects to the country’s war dead.

Services took place in dozens of local towns and villages, from Skegness to Spilsby and Alford to Wainfleet.

The Remembrance Day services follow a number of local ceremonies on Friday that marked Armistice Day.

Pick up this Wednesday’s Skegness Standard for more photos from some of the many services which took place.
