VIDEO: Model boat show sails into Doncaster

Have your say

Shipping forecast conditions might have been described as poor, but torrential rain didn’t stop scores of model boat enthusiasts descending on Doncaster for the Northern Boat Show.

The annual two day event, organised by the Conisbrough and Denaby Modelling Association, drew in hobbyists from across the country.
