Volunteers have begun removing the commemorative ceramic poppies from the display created by Chesterfield Artist Paul Cummins in the moat at the Tower of London.

Each of the 888,246 poppies represents the death of a British and Commonwealth soldier during World War One.

Volunteers remove poppies from the moat of the Tower of London, as work begins dismantling the 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' installation, which captured the imagination of Britain as it commemorated the centenary of the First World War. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Wednesday November 12, 2014. More than five million people have travelled to the Tower of London to see the work since the first ceramic flower was placed in the moat in July. See PA story MEMORIAL Remembrance.
