Have your say

This picture, which dates back to 1927, was taken near Codnor Castle when a plane had to make a forced landing nearby.

The Vickers bomber certainly caused a bit of a stir given all the local children who dashed up to the castle ruins to have a look at what at the time would have been quite a sight. The picture is a copy of one loaned to us by a reader. If you can tell us more about what happened, please get in in touch as we’d love to hear from you. Call us on 0115 9 446186 or email us at
