Gloucestershire wood turner makes wooden trumpet


Philip Anderson plays Amazing Grace on a wooden trumpet made from beech by a south Gloucestershire wood turner.

The beech wood trumpet, handcrafted by George King from Alveston, is made up of 120 wooden parts and took over a week to hand turn and build.

Mr King, who only started the hobby in 2007, said he was "quite surprised" when it was played for the first time last week.
