In case you hadn’t noticed its Victory in Europe (VE) day tomorrow and it marks 75 years since the end of World War II in Europe and the defeat of Hitler and Naziism.

This gives the nation a chance to celebrate albeit under unsual conditions. Plans for street parties have become socially distanced street parties with celebrations confined to the front garden but it wont stop us celebrating.

Of course, any Great British celebration isn’t complete without the Red Arrows and tomorrow is no exception.
