Donington website dedicated to homecoming of Matthew Flinders

A new website has gone live to provide updates on the homecoming of Lincolnshire hero Matthew Flinders.

The remains of the man who mapped the coast of Australia and who gave the continent its name were found earlier this year in London by archaeologists working on the HS2 project.

In October HS2 and Church authorities agreed Matthew could be reburied inside the church in his home village - Donington - and that is likely to happen in the second half of next year.
