A Remembrance Day parade which was due to take place in a Suffolk town has been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.
Lowestoft Town Council, who usually run the event, confirmed in an online letter that they can not guarantee social distancing rules will be adhered to by the public.
However, Mayor of Lowestoft councillor Alan Green confirmed that the laying of wreaths may still be possible.
He said: “The war memorial is a public open space, owned by East Suffolk Council and individual laying of wreaths may, of course, still be possible with adherence to all current social distancing rules.
“I sincerely hope we will be able to join together again in 2021 in our usual way to pay our respects to the fallen of our town who gave so much.
