POPPIES fell from Salisbury Cathedral last night, as the city marks a century since the end of the First World War.

Over Remembrance weekend the colourful projection of poppies will continue falling down the Salisbury Cathedral's West Front, as a tribute to those who sacrificed their lives during the First World War.

The Royal British Legion display first came to life last night, switched on by the Dean of Salisbury.

The poppies will light up again at dusk tonight (Friday, November 9), tomorrow and Sunday, until 10.30pm.

The charity hope the projection will also raise awareness of the Thank You campaign, which is an initiative inviting the public to thank those who served during the war.
