Remembrance Sunday was marked in Inverurie with the laying of poppy wreaths at the town's war memorial.

The usual parade was cancelled and there was a scaled back service in St Andrew's Parish Church due to coronavirus restrictions.

The church service and the wreath-laying ceremony were both streamed online, so people could watch from their homes.

The Last Post was performed before the two-minute silence was observed at 11am.

The ceremony had flag-bearers from the Inverurie branch of The Royal British Legion and Pipe Major David Webster played.

Poppy wreaths were laid by various organisations in the town including The Royal British Legion, Aberdeenshire Council, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and uniformed groups.

Once the ceremony was concluded members of the public could also leave their personal poppy memorials.

The Covid-19 restrictions led to other communities across the north-east also holding private wreath-laying cermonies and online services.

The public were encouraged to take to their doorsteps to mark the two-minute silence at 11am.
