HUNDREDS of people turned out in Barry to witness the annual Remembrance Sunday procession and service.

The procession, along Holton and Gladstone Roads, and ceremony took place on the nearest Sunday to November 11 - the day hostilities officially ended in World War One with the signing of the Armistice.

Remembrance Sunday is a reminder of the sacrifice made by soldiers across all the wars then and since.

Father Ben Andrews gave the service before a bugle sounded the beginning and end of the two-minute silence at 11am.

The Lord Lieutenant, Vale AM Jane Hutt, Barry mayor, Cllr Margaret Wilkinson and Barry Town Council, chief officer Emily Forbes - alongside members of the Royal British Legion Barry, were among those laying wreaths at the cenotaph.

Other organisations lay wreaths at the cenotaph included scout and guide groups, police, the fire service, Barry Rotary Club, Barry Round Table, and the Soroptimists.

A service, in the Barry Memorial Hall, followed.
