Petrol heads can now enjoy getting up close to powerful aircraft engines at a Doncaster museum.

South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum on Airborne Road, Lakeside, has just reopened its display of plane engines dating as far back as 1918.

The refurbished room has been paid for with a £1,400 museum development grant from the Arts Council in Yorkshire, which was matched by the museum, and volunteer Ian Kingsnorth is seen inspecting an engine.
