Commemoration services marking the 60th anniversary of D-Day have been held in the Pool of London and in Southwark Cathedral whilst the Queen and Prime Minister were attending the ceremonies in Normandy.
The service included prayers being said at the main commemoration in Normandy. Hymns sung at Southwark included All My Hope on God is Founded and Abide with Me.
During the Act of Remembrance the Last Post was sounded and the standards dipped.
Similar services were taking place at about the same time in Belgium and Holland.
