Morris Leslie helps Tower poppies display

The display of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London has been one of the highlights of the month.

Five million people have visited the Tower to view the 888,246 poppies, each signifying a British and Colonial military fatality in the First World War.

Since the 12th November a group of 11,000 volunteers have been removing 75,000 poppies per day from the moat of the Tower of London. Each poppy has been sold for £25 each, raising millions of pounds for six service charities.

Morris Leslie, a national plant hire company that specialises in event management, helped out with the installation by supplying a Manitou MT625 telescopic handler.
