Hundreds of people paid their respects to the fallen at an Armistice Day service this morning.

Veterans, residents, schoolchildren, community leaders, councillors and council employees observed a two minute silence near the Job Drain VC Statue in Barking.

Brian and Barry Moody – the grandsons of Barking’s Job Drain VC, who won the country’s highest medal of valour in the First World War – were among those who attended.

Cllr Darren Rodwell, leader of the council, said: “The people of Barking and Dagenham have shown they do not forget the sacrifices hundreds of thousands of our countrymen and women have made in the defence of freedom.”
