A Norfolk aviation museum has had to postpone its first open day of 2018 due to a leaking roof.

The New Farm Aviation Heritage Museum, on Buxton Road, Frettenham, was due to host a public open day on April 8.

However, in a Facebook post it said the roof had suffered a 'very nasty water leak' and was in need of repair.

The museum hosts an interesting collection of items on display, ranging from aircraft parts found in Norfolk to model planes.

Many objects on display have been recovered from the site of a former Second World War airfield in Rackheath.

The museum said the public open day is now on May 13.
