Historic newspapers mark VE Day
Newspaper from 1945
The display will be updated monthly
Visitors to the Museum of London can find out how the newspapers reported the end of World War II.

The City of London museum has organised the free exhibition to mark 60 years since the end of the war.

National and local London newspapers capturing the moment in 1945 will be on display as well as rare British Pathé news reels.

The exhibition, which opens on Sunday, will be updated each month until the end of August.

A museum spokesman said: "This fascinating display, drawn from the Museum of London's unique collection, combines quirky details of daily life - the burglaries and weddings, the flower shows and cinema listings - with headline news.

"Visitors can browse the personals and classified adverts, or witness the birth of a new world order, the devastation of the first atomic bomb and the euphoria of ultimate victory."
