Petworth Boys' School Bombing: Pictures from the 77th anniversary memorial

Seventy-seven years on from the tragedy of Petworth Boys' School being destroyed by a lone German bomber, the community came together to remember the 32 people who lost their lives.

The service was attended by survivors, councillors and other members of the public on Sunday (September 29). Here are some of our pictures from the day:
