People are being invited to attend a service remembering those who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The service, which is an annual event in Exmouth, will take place at the dedicated memorial in Phear Park on Monday, on the 17th anniversary of the attacks.

People who wish to attend should aim to be there for around 1.30pm, for the short service.

Usually the service is conducted by a United States Navy chaplain based at the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, Lympstone, who this year is unavailable.

Lionel Howell, who is helping the fire service to organise the event, said they will find a replacement in time for the service next week.

The service will include a two-minute silence, which will be at 1.46pm.

Among those in attendance will be mayor Jeff Trail, representatives of the emergency services and the families of some of those who died in the terror attacks in 2001.
