Isle of Wight bus drivers will pull over at 11am today and tomorrow (Sunday), if safe to do so, to remember those who lost their lives in battle.

Southern Vectis said buses will stop to mark the two minutes' silence on both Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday.

Buses are also displaying poppies for the Royal British Legion.

There will also be free travel on all of buses for members and veterans of the nation’s armed forces across the weekend.

“People across the Isle of Wight are rightfully proud of our country’s military - as is the team here at Southern Vectis,” said Southern Vectis managing director, Andrew Wickham.

“As part of this community, we are keen to show our support for all those in the services."

Free travel applies to those wearing their military uniform, displaying medals, or showing their military ID card on board.
