More than 150 officers and personnel from visiting Royal Navy Ship HMS Portland will be remembering fallen colleagues on Weymouth Seafront today.

To mark Remembrance Sunday a Service with two minutes silence will take place from 11am.

Captain Simon Asquith says his crew are feeling privileged to take part.

"It will be fantastic to be able to contribute to the Remembrance service here, in what I think will be the largest military presence for some time at the services."

Meanwhile Bovington Tank Museum will feature on TV tonight.

John Craven from Country File have filmed there -  for a World War One Special.

The programme will be shown at 6.30pm this evening.
