A World War Two tank buried 30ft (9m) underground for the past 74 years has been unearthed by volunteers.

The Buffalo LVT was brought in to provide flood defences around Crowland, in Lincolnshire, in 1947, but was swept away and sank into a hole.

A team of volunteers spent five days excavating the vehicle and now hope to restore it and put it on display.

Update:

A wartime landing craft, buried underground for 74 years, has gone on show and could be fully restored by next year, volunteers have said.

The Buffalo LVT was brought in to provide flood defences at Crowland, Lincolnshire, in 1947, but was swept away and sank into a hole.

After excavating the vehicle last April, a group of volunteers have been renovating the craft.
