Bletchley Park, the home of the second world war codebreakers, is to unveil the latest stage in its restoration project.

Hut 11 has been restored thanks to a legacy left by a Bletchley Park veteran and will be officially opened later this morning.

The wartime Turing-Bombe hut was nicknamed the Hell Hole by the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) who operated the Bombe machines because it was so hot and noisy.

The new exhibition includes quotes from the women, telling the story of their time at Bletchley Park.
