The Clash stage an exhibition show in Soho

In 1976 London's vibrant music scene provided the perfect place for the creation of one of the greatest punk bands.

The Clash were the voice of their generation and became part of rock and roll history.

It's been almost three decades since they split, but now the band have come together to create a special exhibition right in the heart of Soho.

ITV News was given a preview.
