Five Oaks footbridge, over Travellers Lane, is now host to a journey through the aviation history in Hatfield.

A total of 25 boys and girls from the 3rd Hatfield Air scouts researched, designed and drew the entire project.

Group scout leader Simone Bothwell told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: "As part of the project they earned their air researcher badge and community challenge badge.

"They put an incredible amount of effort into the project and the community love it!
