Bosses at Jersey War Tunnels are hoping a new exhibition will encourage more young people to get into history.

The 'Fortress Island' exhibit has cost £50,000 and encourages visitors to learn more about German weaponry.

The exhibition also has a brand new interactive touch wall, which uses technology never used before in the island.

This year, we've opened up Fortress Island gallery, so the size of it's the same, but we're telling it in a different way, we're using modern technology as well as the old technology, so we've sort of got that balance this year for the older visitors and the new visitors.
