Nelson's Victory chair preserved

A chair used by Admiral Lord Nelson when he was on board HMS Victory has been preserved by specialists in Northampton.

The black leather daybed had deteriorated badly and conservators at the Leather Conservation Centre (LCC) took 65 hours to carry out the work.

It will now go on display at the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth.
