Sunderland man recreates Puffing Billy train

A man from County Durham has recreated a train he remembers from his childhood holidays at Butlins.

Ian Morrell decided to rebuild the Puffing Billy, which used to take people on rides around the holiday camp in Filey.

He has made a full working replica in his garage - with only an old photograph as his guide.
