Titanic exhibition opens at Hull's Maritime Museum

An exhibition dedicated to the sinking of the Titanic has opened in Hull.

The curator of the city's Maritime Museum, Robin Diaper, said the display would give people an opportunity to learn more about the event in history, without having to travel far.

A range of items are on display, from a fountain pen belonging to the captain to a range of silverware which would have been used on the ship.

The collection, titled Honour & Glory, will be on display until 26 August.

Mr Diaper said an interview with a junior officer on the doomed ship, Hull-born Joseph Boxhall, would be available.

It was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic last month.
