Winston Churchill's Blitz bunker to be opened to public

A disused Tube station where Winston Churchill took refuge during the Blitz is among several London Underground sites to be opened to the public.

Down Street in Mayfair, a station from 1907 to 1932, was used as a bomb-proof bunker for the prime minister during World War Two.

Passageways under Euston Station and Clapham South's deep-level bomb shelter will also be made accessible.

Tours of the sites will be run by London Transport Museum, but BBC London's Tolu Adeoye went along for a sneak preview.
