A Leeds school marked Armistice Day in touching fashion as a display of 300 ceramic poppies was unveiled.

The display at Calverley CE Primary, created by the school’s pupils, parents and teachers, was inspired by the famous Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London.

It is due to be on show until the end of the school week, when the poppies will be sold off individually to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

Today’s unveiling was attended by Corporal Gary Booth, from the Thornbury-based Parachute Regiment.
