V3 Salutes VE Day!
The coronavirus outbreak means people are commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day within their own homes. All public gatherings have been cancelled - but a series of events is still going ahead to mark the end of fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe during World War Two.
Socially-distanced wreath-laying, a two-minute silence, a re-broadcast of Winston Churchill's speech and an address from the Queen are among the national events taking place. The government is encouraging people to watch the events on the BBC and to hold 1940s-style afternoon tea parties within their households.
We owe so much to those who risked their lives and in many cases lost their lives so that we could enjoy our freedom. V3 Salutes VE Day!
