A Roman helmet found on a farm in Cumbria three years ago will go on display in the county for the first time later this week.

The Crosby Garrett helmet - named after the village where it was found - is going to be shown at Carlisle's Tullie House Museum from Friday.

The third century helmet was found on farmland near Penrith three years ago by a metal detector enthusiast.

It will remain on display until the end of January.
