This is what a drone saw when it flew over the Tower of London's poppy display
10th November 2014

The Tower of London have famously marked the centenary of the First World War with a stunning display of ceramic poppies. An estimated four million people have gone to witness the display.

It's not always easy to get a decent view or to appreciate the sheer scale of the display. However, a drone was sent out to capture the commemoration - which it has done with vivid clarity. 

With thanks to the Historical Royal Palaces for the beautiful video.
