Although often overlooked due to the bigger air raids that took place in Swansea and Cardiff, the Luftwaffe's attacks on Newport took their own deadly toll
Bombs are raining down from the sky, with families rushing for shelter as the street around them burns - it's almost impossible to imagine in 2021.
But, eighty years ago, this was the reality facing the people of Newport.
Although often overlooked due to the bigger air raids that took place in Swansea and Cardiff, the Luftwaffe's attacks on Newport took their own deadly toll.
Bombs began falling on the city in 1940, as Nazi Germany began conducting large-scale bombing raids on towns and cities across the UK - better known as 'The Blitz.'
With its large port and heavy industry, Newport was a prime target, and as was the case in London, Cardiff and Swansea, bombs began falling on the city in 1940.
However, it was 1941 that proved to be the deadliest year for Newport.
On one July night alone, 37 civilians were killed by air raids on the city.
Although the final attacks of The Blitz are agreed to be around May 1941, bombs continued to fall on British cities in the following months and years.
Newport was no exception, as the pictures below show.
Taken from the Western Mail archive, most show the aftermath of a Luftwaffe bombing raid that took place in Rogerstone on October 7, 1941 - killing an estimated 11 people.
Others show the damage inflicted elsewhere in Newport.
