People living in Bridport have come together to create their own tribute to mark the end of the First World War.

A temporary memorial has been put up on Colmers Hill in Symondsbury.

Called 'The River of Poppies' it features poppies made by local schools and community groups.

They are tied onto netting donated by Bridport netting companies to commemorate Bridport's WWI history in netting.

Symondsbury Estate are behind the project. The installation stretches over 170m in length on Colmers Hill, beginning at the top of the hill where many of its trees were planted in WWI to commemorate Bridport men who had died in the war.
