SHOPPERS at Lakeside are invited to commemorate the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War in a memorial service.

An art installation made of 3,500 poppies will be put up on August 4, 100 years to the day since Britain declared war on Germany and the start of a four-year conflict in which 37million people were killed.

Royal British Legion will then hold a short service at the Thurrock shopping centre at 11am on August 11.
