A Second World War aircraft grounded for nearly 80 years after crashing has once again taken to the skies.

The Hawker Hurricane is one of ten saved by a restoration business at Elmsett near Ipswich.

14,000 of the planes were made for the RAF during the war but now only a handful exist.

The latest project restored a plane which crash landed in Dunkirk in 1940 but is now flying again after a painstaking rebuilding process.
