Trainspotters enjoyed a rare glimpse of The Flying Scotsman as it passed through Derbyshire at the weekend.

Many lined station platforms, bridges and footpaths across both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire on Saturday including East Midlands Parkway to watch the famous locomotive.

The British Transport Police urged enthusiasts to take up safe viewing points along the potentially hazardous train line.
