Wedgwood treasures saved after fundraising appeal

The Wedgwood Museum collection has been saved for the nation after a fundraising target of £15.75m was reached in a month.

The collection features 80,000 works of art, ceramics, manuscripts, letters and photographs.

It faced being sold to help pay off the pottery firm's pension bill, inherited by Wedgwood Museum after Waterford Wedgwood plc collapsed in 2009.

Liz Copper reports.
