Flags are being raised at council offices in Weymouth and Wareham today to honour service men and women.

The special ceremonies are part of National Armed Forces Day and are happening around the country.

The MOD has asked local communities to get involved.

The flags will be flown until Armed Forces Day on Saturday.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council Mayor Cllr Margaret Leicester said: "I am honoured in leading the ceremony of raising the flag and fully encourage everyone come along and show their respect for the service men and women who have and are fighting for our country."
