A half-size replica of a Rolls-Royce jet engine has been created from Lego to inspire young people to pursue careers in engineering.

Staff at Rolls-Royce in Derby have been inspecting the replica this week.

The inspiration for the model came from a five-year-old boy who built a smaller replica with his father.
