Cornwall prepares to remember the fallen.

The Duchy will come to a halt for two minutes at eleven o'clock to mark Remembrance Sunday.

There is a special programme on Pirate FM from ten o'clock this morning.

Anna Oliver from Redruth's Royal British Legion says there are lots of ways we can help: "We've grown from not just poppies; we've got wristbands, pin badges, they're the most popular things that come out first, car badges and things like that and we distribute them to all the shops, businesses, schools, pubs and volunteer groups.

"We form up in Victoria Park and then we'll proceed down to St Andrews' church this year and we encourage all volunteer groups, youth groups, veterans groups to come and participate."
