Bomb Damage at Newgate Street. On 29 December 1940, the City of London was hit by one of the heaviest night raids of the Blitz. Some of the worst damage occurred around St Paul's and Paternoster Row. Practically all the buildings on the south side of nearby Newgate Street were destroyed. The night became known as 'Red Sunday'. The following morning, Police Constables Arthur Cross and Fred Tibbs took to the City streets to photograph the destruction. Much of this area was razed to the ground.
