Titanic radio room replica goes on display in Swaffham

A replica of the Titanic's wireless room made by a retired lorry driver has gone on display in a museum.

When the ship sank the radio room operators were sending out distress messages until the very end.

All the ship's radio equipment was made by Marconi in Chelmsford and one message would have cost passengers £50 in today's money.

Ted Sinclair's brass and wood creation is on display at Swaffham Museum in Norfolk for three months.
