VE Day was on Tuesday, 8 May 1945, marking the end of World War II in Europe.

While the war continued for the time being in other parts of the world, the end of the Nazis in Europe led to celebrations across Britain.

This 9.5mm cine film footage was a home movie recording of VE Day celebrations in Torquay.
