Watch the 70th anniversary Battle of Britain fly-past

Today, Friday 20 August, marks the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain in Whitehall, with a special Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire and Hurricane fly-past overhead at 4.05pm.

At the Cabinet War Rooms, there will also be a special reading from Winston Churchill’s famous, ‘Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few’ speech at exactly 15:52pm, the time it was originally delivered by Churchill on the same day 70 years ago.

Outside the War Rooms, there is also a full size replica of a Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1, which will remain in place to mark the occasion until the end of the month.
