Appeal over rare Gateshead VE Day footage

Rare footage of VE Day celebrations in Gateshead has been released in a bid to trace those who appear in it.

The colour film, taken on the day World War II came to an end in Europe in 1945, shows a party on an unknown street in the area.

It is believed to have been recorded by an off-duty policeman who worked locally in the photographic unit.

Anyone who believes they can identify individuals shown in the footage is asked to contact the BBC.
