A thousand schoolchildren have had a taste of life as a Second World War evacuee. The pupils travelled back to the 1940's in a war-time re-enactment event on a steam railway.
Joining the children were the Prime Minister and King and Queen of the day, a real-life evacuee reliving her childhood, and our Education Correspondent Peter Bearne.
