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.
