Full report: Flying Scotsman Rally visits the region

The region played host to a bygone era at the weekend.

More than one hundred vintage cars passed through Cumbria and stopped off at Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway on their way to Gleneagles.

All the vehicles were built before 1940 and were part of the 6th Flying Scotsman Vintage Rally, travelling hundreds of miles from London to Scotland.

Threat to vintage cars

For many brides going to the church in a vintage car is a dream come true, but proposals to change legislation surrounding them could see the end of that tradition.

The law commison wants to update the law for taxi and private hire vehicles, some of which dates back to the 1800s. At the moment wedding and funeral cars are exempt. But the new propsals would include them and bring extra costs that could see many unable to carry on. Marti Errington-Dodds reports
