Yoko Ono revisits John Lennon's Liverpool childhood

Yoko Ono paid an "emotional" visit to John Lennon's former school as part of an event to mark what would have been his forthcoming 70th birthday.

Ono met children at Dovedale School in Liverpool, where she also opened a new Sure Start children's centre.

Later, she visited Mendips in Woolton, Lennon's childhood home he shared with his aunt Mimi from 1945 to 1963.

She said it made her "choke up" to visit her husband's bedroom where he dreamed as a teenager.
