A Jaguar aircraft installed outside Norfolk's County Hall in 2007 following the closure of RAF Coltishall is undergoing maintenance work.

It had previously stood at the entrance to the air base.

A council spokesman said: 'The Jaguar aircraft is currently being cleaned by Norfolk County Council's building contractors RG Carter, who are currently carrying out the refurbishment project at County Hall. The county council approached RG Carter to ask if they would be willing to carry out the work and they agreed to as a gesture of good will.

'RG Carter have supplied the labour materials and staff to carry out the maintenance work at no cost to the county council. We have taken expert advice about how best to maintain the aircraft and it was agreed that the work should go ahead now as the materials were available and it is the right time of year to carry out this type of work.'
