A display of 15,500 handmade poppies has gone on display to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Each poppy in St Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich, represents an individual killed in the war and named on a Norfolk war memorial.

A year-long campaign by the county council seeking poppies brought in contributions from around the world.

Organiser Sarah Salmon said the display was a "fitting tribute".

The poppies have been knitted, crocheted and made from a wide range of recycled materials by crafting groups based in Norfolk's libraries.

It's a lovely tribute, and nice how members of the community participated. It would have been sad if just one poppy had to be made, let alone 15,500.
