People around the country came together to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day from their front gardens.

One of the most stunning efforts we found was in Denmark Lane, in Diss, at the home of the Hines family.

Not only did they put up bunting and flags, but they also had a 1944 Willis Jeep and an Austin 10 GS1 car on display.

David Hines said: “Considering we only have eight houses in our street, they did really well to celebrate and people said we put on a brilliant display.”

Mr Hines, whose father was called up to fight in the Second World War in 1939, is a member of the Norfolk Military Vehicle Group, and has previously used his collection for weddings, village fetes and even a school prom.

The day was truly a family affair, with wife Julie providing cake and tea in china cups and 11-year-old son Sam and 14-year-old daughter Natalie also dressing for the occasion.
