It has taken two decades of painstaking work but the iconic Bluebird powerboat that smashed the world speed record in 1937 is ready to take to the water again.

After a remarkable restoration project the 130mph craft, driven into the history books by Sir Malcolm Campbell, has been faithfully rebuilt by a team in Sussex.

They are performing trial runs this morning at Bewl Reservoir. More at 6pm.
