Construction pupils from the College of West Anglia Wisbech campus created the memorial just in time for the college's ceremony on Monday, November 11.

All three college campuses, in Wisbech, King's Lynn and Milton, fell silent for two minutes to commemorate the anniversary of Armistice Day.

A spokesman for the college said: "Students and staff gathered around our Remembrance Day soldier at the Wisbech campus.

"Construction students who made the silhouette of the soldier and students and staff from all faculties helped to make poppies, and we exceeded our target of 450.

"Each poppy was to represent each person who is remembered on the Wisbech war memorial for the first and second world war."
