British Library builds fire-proof home for 750m newspapers
The British Library's new £33m storage facility for newspapers at Boston Spa, near Wetherby, in West Yorkshire is nearing completion.
When it opens next year 750m pages of newsprint dating back 300 years will be moved there.
The collection is currently held in Colindale, north London.
Steve Morris, of the library, said: "It'll be a low-oxygen environment that means there will be absolutely no possibility of a fire in the building."
