Tower of London overwhelmed by visitors headed to WW1 commemoration
3rd November 2014

The sea of poppies at the Tower of London commemorated the fallen soldiers of the First World War has been proving so popular that authorities have been asking people to stay away. Thus far over four million people have visited the installation. 

Dan Freedman was live from the Tower of London and talks through the sheer, heaving mass of visitors at the site and the extra security guards employed to cope with the crowds.

Dan spoke to visitors who were up early to try and see the poppies before the queues began. 

All the poppies in the installation have now been sold, with the proceeds going to the Poppy appeal.
