Remembrance Day parade scrapped for first time in 60 years over 'health and safety' fears
It is a quintessential part of being British: that in towns and cities up and down the country people march to commemorate the war dead on Remembrance Sunday.

New guidelines are being introduced by police and councils which could spell an end to the tradition - by making the parades too expensive to hold.
