The latest live music event at Banksy's Dismaland will be headlined by DJ Fatboy Slim - famous for classic club tracks like Praise You and Right Here Right Now.

Rumours had been flying for several days, but the famous DJ has been confirmed today. Hip-hop star Mos Def has already performed - while Bristol band Massive Attack are lined up for later in the month.

There will be music or comedy every Friday night during the five week exhibition at the Bristol artist's so-called Bemusement Park. Tickets for tonight's event have long since sold out, while the newest batch are due to go online next week.

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.

More than fifty veterans from across North Somerset, aged between 89 and 101, gathered today to mark the occasion.

The focus of the service at St Paul's church in Weston-super-Mare was to remember the so-called "forgotten army", the Fourteenth Army, which fought the Japanese forces in Burma. It was an operation largely overlooked by the press at the time.

Ten of the veterans at today's commemoration served in the Far East.
