Pentominoes with numbers  Aad van de Wetering from The Netherlands.

Following "Jigsaw Sudoku Puzzle" from Peter Jeuken, Aad made the next puzzle.

Place the pieces so that each row, each column and the diagonals contains the digits 1 through 8.
You must fill in the gray cells by hand.
The remaining 60 cells are to be occupied by the pentominoes.
The digits need not be upright, and you may flip over pieces.

Diagonal neighbours (2 locations next to each other in a diagonal direction) never contain the same number
You get one number '3'
