1960s fashions (such as those by designer Mary Quant) are the UK's fashion favourites of the past 75 years

The Sixties really WERE swinging! Brits choose decade as one they'd most like to have lived in (and men vote it the sexiest thanks to miniskirts and bikinis)

For nostalgic Brits, nothing can trump the music, fashion and sporting successes of the Sixties as they vote it the best of all the past eight decades.

'Clacton Disturbances', taken in March 1963 by C Smith for the Daily Herald. The photograph shows a group of mods near the seafront at Clacton-on Sea, Essex. 100 arrests were made over the Easter weekend of 27-30 March 1964 in Clacton, following clashes between groups of mods and rockers. Mods and rockers were youth subculture groups in the 1960s, members of the two groups regularly came together at seaside towns, often resulting in fighting and riots.
