Bethnal Green wartime memorial to be unveiled

A memorial marking the deaths of a 173 people at a London tube station during World War II is to be unveiled.

The victims, mainly woman and children, were killed when they rushed to enter Bethnal Green tube station after an air raid warning 70 years ago.

The alarm turned out to be a test - and it led to the worst British civilian disaster in the war.

Andrew Plant reports.
