In photos: Remembrance Day service held in Highbridge

Residents in Highbridge marked Remembrance Day with a parade through the town followed by a service at St John's Church and a wreath-laying ceremony at the town's war memorial.

Highbridge Mayor Ken Smout and Sedgemoor District Council Chairman Gill Slocombe, right, were among the dignitaries who took part in the special event.

The service was led by Reverend Sharon Crossman, vicar of St John's, and was preceded by a procession of over 100 people from the Bank Street Car Park.

Among the groups laying wreaths were Highbridge Scouts, Brownies and Cubs plus local Army and Sea cadets.

40 St John Ambulance Cadets and Badgers also paraded through the town.

Members of the town's police force, town council, Lions Club and Royal British Legion also paid their respects.
