In pictures: Lincoln gathers to commemorate Remembrance Sunday

Services took place across the county

People gathered for services across Lincolnshire on Remembrance Sunday to honour those who lost their lives at war to defend our freedoms.

Remembrance services have been observed since the end of the First World War in 1918 to honour members of the armed forces who lost their lives serving their country in the line of duty.

Events were held across the county, including in Lincoln on Thursday and Saturday. On Remembrance Sunday, Lincoln Cathedral hosted its usual annual service, with the Mayor of Lincoln in attendance along with the Civic Party and members of the council.

A service also took place at the Spire Memorial at the International Bomber Command Centre. This year, 34 wreaths were laid by different organisations, and there were performances from the IBCC choir and orchestra.

Lincoln Cathedral was lit up red in the evening to mark Remembrance Sunday and commemorate all who sacrificed their lives and suffered in the course of human conflict.
