Record-setting steam locomotive Mallard arrives in Grantham

5 September 2013 Last updated at 14:38 BST

The steam locomotive Mallard has left York to travel to Grantham to celebrate its world speed record set in 1938.

Mallard hit a top speed of 126 mph (203km/h) on the East Coast mainline 75 years ago - and the record still stands.

A special siding has been set aside for Mallard at the station in Grantham ahead of the Festival of Speed.
