Staff at the Roman Baths in Bath have said they are close to reaching their target of £60,000 towards buying one of the largest hoards of silver Roman coins.

They now have to raise a further £10,000 in the next three months.

The coins were found in the city in 2007, and the team at the baths want to acquire them as the centrepiece of a new exhibition.
