Are you doing anything to celebrate 70 years since World War two formally ended? Tell us about your VE Day celebrations.

The 70th anniversary of VE Day will be celebrated on Friday, May 8 and we want to know what is happening in North Devon.

Victory in Europe Day (VE Day) this year marks 70 years since the day World War Two formally ended in Europe in 1945.

Across the UK, 107 beacons will be list at sunset, and communities are being encouraged to organise celebrations.

There are many ways people can get involved, from attending or hosting a street party or picnic, to watching a special V-shaped beacon being lit in their community, or listening out for the bells ringing in their local cathedral or church.

The public are being invited to share their plans on the newly launched VE Day 70 events map.

Local events will make up part of a wider three day programme of events, including a service of thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey which will be attended by Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family.

Veterans of the Second World War are also being encouraged to take a leading role in the national commemorations.

Last week The Royal British Legion invited veterans to join the national commemorations in London and funding for travel has been made available for veterans and their carers.

Details of how to arrange the lighting of a beacon can be found here. To find out where the nearest beacon is, visit the web map, where all the beacon sites will be added over the coming weeks.
