Slough's bustling Town Square took on a more sombre tone on Sunday as the town's Act of Remembrance began at 10.45am.

Gathered crowds watched as cadets and youth organisations creating a temporary altar of drums - the Mayor of Slough Cllr Ishrat Shah then laid the Book of Remembrance on top.

The town's councillors then joined the mayor standing to attention in the square as her chaplain Reverend Linda Hillier officiated over the two minute silence - and the Last Post and Reveille was played.

The mayor in her red robe then led the parade through Slough High Street to St Mary's Church in Church Street.

She was followed by the council's interim chief executive Roger Parkin, Slough's MP Tan Dhesi, the town's police commander Superintendent Gavin Wong, plus past mayors in blue robes and Slough borough councillors in black including representatives from the town's three parish councils - Colnbrook with Poyle, Wexham Court and Britwell.

Rector of St Mary's Church Reverend Andrew Allen officiated at the Civic Service of Remembrance, before wreaths were laid on the War Memorial outside.

The mayor, the MP, leader of the council Cllr Sohail Munawar, deputy leader of the opposition Cllr Rayman Bains, representatives of parish councils, ex-services associations and uniformed public service groups all took part.

Youth organisations including the 153 Slough Squadron Air Training Corps, army cadet forces, sea cadets and Thames Valley Police cadets joined representatives of the scout movement as they laid their own wreaths.
