Men from Wisbech who gave their lives during the First World War were honoured during a ceremony.

Members of the Royal British Legion Riders Branch visited Mount Pleasant Cemetery for a unique ceremony as part of the 876 ceremony.

The riders have vowed over the next five years to visit the graves of the 876 men from this area who died in the war.

Privates Charles Sebar, David Arthur Walker, Percy Kitchen, George Cook and William Clarke are buried in the cemetery.

Members of the Wisbech branch of the Royal British Legion joined the bikers at the service along with cadets and dignitaries including mayor David Hodgson.

The service was taken by the Rev Neil Gardner.
