Richmondshire veterans have helped carve a wooden case to display a ceremonial knife.

The case has been presented to the district council.

Nepalese Ambassador, Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi gave the authority a ceremonial khukuri.

The khukuri is a Nepalese knife with an inwardly curved blade which is a characteristic weapon of the Gurkha.

It will displayed in the council chamber at Mercury House in a wooden case made through the Healthy Horizons programme which sees veterans try their hand at new skills.

They worked with master craftsman, Terry Harrington, to make the case.
