Ahead of Remembrance Day, students from Market Rasen De Aston School paid their own tributes to the fallen.

The school has taken over tending the graves and make regular visits to them.

Teacher Neil Huddlestone said: “It was an initiative set up last year as part of the centenary commemorations.

“The students have really got on board with it.

“It is a way for them to show respect for those who laid down their lives.”
