The leader of a council paid tribute to those who gave their lives in war during Remembrance Sunday.

Two services were held in Enfield and Edmonton Green on Sunday to remember those who gave their lives in conflict.

Cllr Nesil Caliskan, leader of Enfield Council, laid a wreath during one of the services.

She said: “Remembrance Day is about remembering those who fell during the World Wars, but we also now remember those servicemen and women who lost their lives in more recent conflicts, and those whose families are still in mourning.

“I hope to see the people of Enfield turning out to welcome the members of the Royal British Legion, and our soldiers, young and old who will be joining us in this Day of Remembrance.”

The service at Edmonton Green began at 10.40am with a prayer of rededication of the Memorial.

At 10.58am, the Last Post was played, followed by a two-minute silence and then the Reveille.

Wreaths were laid and the National Anthem was played to close the service.

A wreath-laying service also took place at Chase Side at 2pm. There was no service at Southgate this year.
