A World War 2 Tiger 131 tank - thought to be the last one in working order - is being loaned to the makers of the latest Brad Pitt film.

 

The star has been shooting scenes for the action movie Fury around the village of Shirburn in Oxfordshire.

 

The German tank was restored by experts at the Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset, where it is usually on display.

 

Museum director Richard Smith said it was "one of the the most feared weapons unleashed by the Nazis".

 

He said it had a "formidable reputation and could destroy an enemy tank from over 2km away".
