Pupils at a Cumbrian school are being encouraged to consider one of the many roles on offer in the motorsport industry.

Employees from M-Sport, which runs Ford's World Rally programme at Dovenby near Cockermouth, will be showing pupils at Nelson Thomlinson in Wigton one of their rally cars.

It is part of national Motorsport Week and Careers Day for the sixth formers at the school.
