A new exhibition opened on September 2 at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, marking exactly 75 years to the day since the official end to all hostilities in Europe and Japan.

Duty Done Again looks at the impact of the Second World War on Bridlington.

It shows how residents managed the changes to their lives and lifestyles after the war, from the troops billeted there to the role of the council.

The Corporation had bought Sewerby Hall and Gardens from owner Yarburgh Lloyd Greame in 1934 for £45,000.

The exhibition will be in the house and will run until 8 November.
