Most drivers prefer to wait for the weekend before letting off steam. But not Malcolm Bell. For Malcolm spends the whole week getting all steamed up by driving one of the North-East's last working steam rollers.
Malcolm, aged 28, of Lanehead, Coanwood, near Holtwhistle, works for Mr Jake Johnson, a steam enthusiast, who is the only contractor in the area still using rollers driven by steam on 7th May 1970
