Life size models depicting First World War soldiers will be ‘standing guard’ across the county.

The ghost soldiers are now stationed in Cowpen Cemetery, in Blyth, which contains a number of war graves, in the run up to Armistice Day.

The beautiful, eerie sculptures – first erected in 2019 – symbolise the absence of the young men killed overseas, unable to return to their loved ones back home.
