On the 75th anniversary of VE Day, the Sunderland Conservatives organised a very special surprise for a veteran in the city.
Rob Page, who lives in Southwick, services with the parachute regiment. He was visited by Conservative councillors and candidates, emergency services representatives and his neighbours.
Fulwell candidate Michael Hartnack organised a hamper for Mr Page.
We offer our thanks to all the city’s veterans this VE Day.
