They soar high above the streets of King's Lynn - though not quite so high as their full-sized counterparts.

Fourteen uniquely-decorated scale models of Tornados have been dotted at elevated locations across the town, as part of a new arts trail, with two more to be installed in the next month.

Each has been sponsored by a local business, and there are 24 display boards on the trail for people to discover more about the history of RAF Marham, which is celebrating its centenary with a series of events this year.

It follows the format of last year's successful Spitfire trail in the town, and has again been organised by Flight Lieutenant Pauline Petch, of the 42F (King's Lynn) Air Cadets, with involvement from West Norfolk Council.

She said: 'The trail has only just started, but people already seem happy with it.'

Trail maps are available from King's Lynn tourist information centre, and the sculptures will be in place until September 30.
