Norton motorbike fans pledge to restore grave of brand's founder

Fans of the classic Norton motorbikes have pledged to restore the grave of the man who built them.

James Lansdowne Norton, who built up his company in Birmingham, died in 1925 and was buried in the city.

His grave in Selly Oak was discovered overgrown by motorbike enthusiasts.

They have tracked down his descendants and are hoping to begin work on the site.
