    Every one of the 888,246 poppies represents a British or Colonial military death in the First World War.

    This morning the final poppy was planted by a 13-year-old army cadet.

    It was recently revealed the artist behind the project lost a finger during the process of making it.

    Volunteers will begin removing the poppies from tomorrow.

    However, the Evening Standard reports: "the 'Weeping Window' cascade of poppies from a window and the 'Wave', a surge of poppies near the entrance – will remain until the end of the month."

    An estimated four million people have now seen the installation.
