SILENCE fell across Tynedale on Sunday as old and young across the district paused to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
War memorials up and down the Tyne Valley are now adorned with the blood red of the iconic poppy after crowds turned out to pay their respects to the Fallen on Remembrance Day.

STAFF at five hospitals in the Tynedale area walked out during a strike over pay.
Hexham General, Hexham War Memorial, Haltwhistle War Memorial, Wooley Sanatorium and Prudhoe hospitals, were all affected after the National Union of Public Employees called out their members.
Ancillary staff, including porters, cooks, telephone operators and boilermen joined the 12-hour stoppage with some NUPE members taking part in a protest march in Newcastle.
