With thousands of people enjoying the opening day of the 44th Grand Henham Steam Rally, the event is continuing today (Sunday) at Henham Park, near Southwold – with a record number of steam exhibitors from around the country in attendance.

The rally committee launched a new initiative yesterday – with the chance for members of the public to get behind the wheel of a steam engine for the first time in the event's history.

The public steering sessions proved popular as they were showcased in the Len Murray Arena – and they are continuing this morning.

Helen Walker, rally chairman, said: 'We are hoping for good things again as there were lots of people here (on Saturday).'
