Isle of Wight field of remembrance opened

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays this month could go along to a field of remembrance in order to pay their respects to Britain's fallen war heroes during their time on the island.

Carisbrooke Castle will be hosting the location at Princess Beatrice Garden throughout November in order to mark the dead.

The doors will be opened to the public to go along and pay their respects in the private space on November 10th and 11th, while the Royal British Legion will be in attendance selling crosses.

A free bus service has been set up by local provider Southern Vectis in order to carry people from Newport bus station to the castle.

The Isle of Wight Council added: "A service of remembrance will take place at the castle on November 10th at 10:45 BST, which members of the public are welcome to attend."

Carisbrooke Castle is where King Charles I was imprisoned following his defeat in the English Civil War.
