Saturday, 15th August marked the 75th anniversary of VJ Day, the surrender of Japan and the end of the Second World War.

The Friends of Bramley War Memorial held a socially distanced ceremony with a small number of people, which included the reading out of the names of those who their lives, the laying of wreaths, readings and a two-minute silence.

To make up for the lack of attendees due to Covid-19 restrictions, West Leeds Dispatch live-streamed the event on Facebook. The live stream has so far been watched more than 1,300 times.

Here are some of the photographs taken on the day by Philip McConnell.
