On VE Day Brightlingsea Town  Mayor Graham Steady laid a wreath at the War Memorial in Victoria Place on behalf of the Town Council to commemorate those who died in the service of their country during the WWII.

The 6.30am ceremony took place after Dereck “ Spud” Murphy, Chairman of the Royal British Legion Brightlingsea Branch, raised the Union Flag. Social distancing rules were observed.

Footage of the ceremony can be seen on Facebook here in a virtual VE Day service organised by Tendring District Council.
