BARB's Chairman, Alan Miller, said: "It's great that the school enjoyed their first visit so much last autumn and wanted to bring even more pupils this time."

He added: "We were very pleased to show them around and I think they all enjoyed this week's visit, especially being able to look inside the craft. It was brilliant to see their faces light up when we told them they could get in and look around."
