World-record setting steam locomotive Mallard is at Grantham Station this weekend as part of the town's Story of Speed festival. It's 50 years since the locomotive was last in the town.

Mallard broke the world record at Stoke Bridge near Grantham in 1938, hitting 125.88 mph, a record which still remains unbroken.
