    A pair of historic cannons are set to go on display in a Bradford park.

    Roberts Park in Saltaire will welcome the 19th century weapons during a Sneaky Peeks event on 18 April.

    They will replace two cannons, one of which was fired at the Battle of Trafalgar. They were on display at the park until being melted down for the war effort during World War II.

    The new canons will arrive following restoration from their old home at the gates of the Bradford Council-run Industrial Museum.
