A model of the tramway in Warwick in 1916 has gone on display in the town.

At the weekend Joan Bolton, who was born and bred in Warwick but now lives in Shrewley Common, donated the model which was created by her late husband Keith.

The model is based on the year 1916 - the same year a tram crashed into the Castle Arms pub.

Keith started the model in about 1996 and it wasn't quite finished when he died so Joan sought out help from Dick Hewins who knew her husband to finish the project.

The model is now on display inside the visitor information centre in the Court House in Jury Street.
