Stations along the Great Central Railway are holding World War Two events today to give visitors a flavour of life in the forties.

Stations including Quorn, Rothley and Loughborough are each celebrating the Railways's annual Wartime Event with their own forms of entertainment.

The only Spitfire in the world with a complete original cockpit and working 27 Litre Rolls Royce Engine will be on display at Quorn and Woodhouse station.

Military vehicles are on display and there's also period entertainment, with re-enactors wearing clothes from the period.
