West Hartlepool Rugby Club, on Catcote Road, hosted a classic car and bike show on Sunday afternoon by the North of England Classic and Pre-War Automobile Club.

On show were vehicles ranging from classic VW caravanettes, cars from the Triumph Stag owners club and vintage cars dating from the roaring twenties right up to present day including a number of Rolls Royces.

It was the second year that the automobile club has staged the show at the rugby club and was organised by Mark Baggs.

There were also a number of classic motorbikes in the show including Ronald Hull and his Brough Superior that was made for his grandfather in 1919 and has remained in the family ever since.
