Wales commemorates 70th anniversary of VE day

Amid all the election excitement, the main party leaders - including the now departed Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg - took time to remember the seventieth anniversay of VE Day.

They were present at a wreath laying ceremony in Westminster, also attended by First Minister Carwyn Jones.
