The remains of a 1,000-year-old Viking boat have gone on display for the first time in the city where it was found.

It was discovered at Stanley Ferry, near Wakefield, in 1838 when an aqueduct was built across the River Calder.

The boat was in a York museum but is now housed in Wakefield Library.

Danny Carpenter reports.
