A youngster from King's Lynn in Norfolk has such a passion for the RAF that he's turned his bedroom into a military museum.

Sam Boore was inspired by a trip to the RAF Marham heritage centre and he's filled his room with military memorabilia.

It's even been designated as an official "learning destination" by the Children's University organisation

Sam Boore is not just a seven-year-old schoolboy he's also the curator of an RAF museum in his bedroom at Magdalen near King's Lynn.

He has spent the past couple of months amassing his collection. Much of it was bought with his own pocket money and items have also been donated for him to display.

Friends and relatives have already started to visit his museum and he's using it to raise money for a local armed forces charity called Bridge For Heroes. So far he's collected around £250.
