South Crofty mining
A United Nations body has called for an immediate halt to work to reopen a tin mine in Cornwall.
Unesco (the United Nations' Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) said the work should be stopped at South Crofty, near Camborne.
It said it was not properly consulted before planning consent was granted for the work in Cornwall and West Devon's Mining World Heritage Site.
Managers at Crofty said Unesco's call was "hard to fathom".
