The Queen is to attend a thanksgiving service at Westminster Abbey on the final day of 70th anniversary commemorations of VE Day – the end of World War Two in Europe.

The Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and Prime Minister David Cameron will also attend, along with about 1,000 veterans and their families.

Later a military parade will be followed by a fly-past of WW2 aircraft.

It comes after a 1940s-themed concert was held in London on Saturday night.

Thousands of spectators, including WW2 veterans, gathered at an aircraft hangar-style stage to see musical and dance acts influenced by the era.
