PEOPLE who lost their lives at sea will be remembered in an annual church service in Portsmouth.

The event for seafarers will also commemorate the life of Admiral Lord Nelson.

There will be prayers at the Anglican cathedral in Old Portsmouth, followed by a procession to the statue of Nelson in Grand Parade, where wreaths will be laid.

Portsmouth’s Lord Mayor Frank Jonas will also throw a wreath from the sea wall into the waves in remembrance 
of people who have died at 
sea.

Other dignitaries at the service will include Andrew Kent, the deputy lieutenant of Hampshire, as well as mayors of Gosport, Fareham and Havant.

The service will start at 10.30am on Sunday.
