Veterans have gathered in Weston-super-Mare to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
The Allies celebrated victory over Japan on the 15th August 1945 after atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The official surrender document was signed by the Japanese on the 2nd of September. Both dates are known as VJ Day.
