Events to mark Remembrance Sunday have been held across the West Midlands.

Towns, cities and villages organised services to remember those who gave their lives in war.

Saturday's Armistice Day Service of Remembrance at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire was led by the Princess Royal.

Senior representatives of the armed forces and the Ministry of Defence attended.

Across the border in Warwickshire, thousands of people lined the streets of Bedworth for Saturday's annual Armistice Parade.

The town has held the event on 11 November for more than a century and is thought to be the only place in the UK outside of London to have done so.

Coventry Blitz remembered

Coventry's Remembrance Sunday parade began at Spencer Park, making its way to War Memorial Park, where a service was held.

A communal grave service was held at London Road Cemetery at 15:00 GMT on Sunday to remember those killed in the Coventry Blitz in 1940.

Across Worcestershire, a number of roads were closed for a time to allow for parades to take place.
