On behalf of Nottingham Express Transit (NET), Tramlink Nottingham’s head of service delivery Lea Harrison said: “The city is pulling together a tremendous programme to mark the day and we are delighted to be playing our part in paying our own tribute to our service men and women.”

Lea, a former serviceman, added:  “The tram will be in service right up to the day itself and so will be a high profile reminder to people in and around Nottingham of the upcoming celebrations.”
