Record-breaking Canberra WK163 jet to be restored

A record-breaking jet that has been on the ground in Coventry for almost 10 years is to be restored.

A £1m fundraising campaign is under way to rebuild the English Electric Canberra WK163.

The Vulcan to the Sky Trust is behind the project and plans to take the plane to Doncaster for the repair work to begin.
