Thousands visit Abbey Pumping Station in Leicester

Thousands of people have visited a Victorian pumping station in Leicester to see all four of its steam powered engines back in action.

The Abbey Pumping Station pumped Leicester's sewage from 1891 to 1964.

Restoration work of the engines began after the station became a museum, more than 40 years ago.
