Emergency work has started to repair a section of ruins at Coventry Cathedral that were in danger of collapse.

On part of the former 14th Century cathedral a large crack has opened in one of the walls along Bayley Lane.

In May a fundraising campaign was given $150,000 by American Express after an appeal by the World Monuments Fund.

The work, being completed by restoration specialists Norman and Underwood, is expected to cost about £250,000 and be completed by November.
