The annual service held at the dedicated memorial, in Phear Park, was attended by town mayor Steve Gazzard, the family and friends of people who died in the 2001 tragedy and members of the emergency services.

Town and district councillor Fred Caygill and town crier Roger Bourgein also attended the service.

The Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue chaplain Julie Andrews led the service with Nathan Lapwood, manager of Exmouth Fire Station, saying a prayer.

Last Post and Reveille were played by the fire service buglers.

The service was held in memory of the nearly 3,000 people who died when four commercial aircraft were hijacked in the United States. Two were flown into the towers of the World Trade Centre in New York, one crashed into the Pentagon and one was brought down in Pennsylvania.

More than 6,000 people were also injured as a result of the terror attacks.
