The Uk will marl the 75th anniversary pf VJ Day on Saturday with a series of events - including a two-minute silence and a flypast by the Red Arrows.

The RAF display team will be seen at multiple locations across the country to marl the day World War Two officially came to an end.

VJ day marks the date that Japan surrendered - three months after the surrender of German - and was the end of the Second World War.

Japan ceased fighting on August 15 1945 after two atomic bombs were dropped on its cities, formally signing its surrender to Allied forces on September 2 that year.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: "When the Second World War ended 75 years ago with the surrender of Japan, British soldiers, sailors and airmen were serving in the Far East, fighting hard to achieve victory - and were among the last to come home.

“On this anniversary I want to remember what we owe the veterans of the Far East campaign.

“They brought an end to the Second World War, they changed the course of history for the better, liberated South East Asia, and many paid the ultimate sacrifice.

“That's why on this remarkable anniversary - and every day hereafter - we will remember them.”
