Lincoln Cathedral: Abseilers check damage to the stonework

Lincoln Cathedral has called in abseilers to assess damage to the stonework in long-running repairs caused by "cowboy builders" from the Victorian era.

The upkeep of the ancient building costs millions of pounds a year and in 2011 it was placed on English Heritage's at risk register.
