A Lincolnshire bubble car museum has reopened in a new venue after running out of space at its former home.

The owners of the attraction have moved their collection of more than 30 micro cars from Byards Leap to a bigger building in Langrick, near Boston.

The museum, which first opened in 2004, has more than 30 cars as well as classic scooters and 1960s memorabilia.

Owner Paula Cooper said it was exciting to be open again after being closed for a year and a half.

Bubble car is the popular term for micro cars - used to define cars with an engine capacity of less than 700cc.

'More space'

The vehicles reached their peak of popularity in the 1960s and the new museum has been decorated to reflect that era.

The museum was officially reopened by the Mayor of Boston, Mary Wright.

Mrs Cooper said: "We've been working like mad on the museum right up to the night before its reopening."

She added that the new venue was "almost double the size" and had "bigger tea rooms and more space around each car."
