London subway station reopens as museum

Aldwych underground station, near central London's Covent Garden, provided refuge to thousands of Britons who slept on the platforms and huddled on train tracks during the constant German air raids between September 1940 and May 1941. All sold-out tours are being conducted this weekend only by actors in 1940s clothing. Laura Lynch managed to get on one of them.
