Funding bid to make third Lancaster Bomber airworthy

BBC Look North has caught up with two Lincolnshire brothers hoping to get a Lancaster Bomber back into the skies.

Fred and Harold Panton run an aviation museum near Spilsby, where the plane - "Just Jane" - is currently used for taxiing rides.

The pair announced their plans in December and are currently trying to raise funds for the project.

If successful, the aircraft would become only the third airworthy Lancaster in the world.

Look North's Gemma Dawson reports.
