Massive silo driven through Corby

A giant silo, the size of two double-decker buses, has arrived in Northamptonshire after a "challenging" journey from Lincolnshire.

Roquette UK, which employs 150 people in Corby, was granted permission to transport the silo 75 miles (120km) by road, to Weldon Industrial Estate.

Street signs were removed along the way to allow the silo and police escort to pass through narrow village streets.

It will hold 250 tonnes of pellets used in making animal feed.
