A schoolboy has sadly died after volunteering at an open-air museum. The accident happened when the schoolboy fell from a steam roller he was riding and crushed by the trailer it was towing.

The boy was standing on the tow-bar of the vintage steam roller being driven by his Father, 41, in front of visitors to, when he fell of and was crushed by the 1.5 tonne trailer.

The father and son had been helping other volunteers work on the engines before setting off around the site in July.
