Children from Canary Wharf College and their teachers also paid their respects at the Isle of Dogs memorial as the nation fell silent in tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Elsewhere, Fusilier Lee Rigby, who was killed by extremists, has been honoured on a memorial plaque unveiled in Woolwich.

The 25-year-old was hit by a car outside the army barracks and then killed in brutal fashion in May 2013.

His name joins 10 others on a plaque at St George's Chapel, near the barracks, to honour service personnel and civilians local to Greenwich. His mother Lyn, his wife Rebecca and son Jack were among those at a private unveiling.
