Some 1,400 bell ringers are to be recruited in 2018 to mark 100 years since World War One ended.

They will represent the 1,400 bell ringers who died in the conflict.

Bells in churches and cathedrals will ring out on 11 November and Big Ben will also strike to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.

Church bells were rung in celebration when armistice was declared in 1918, after having been restricted during the four-year war.
