Concern over funding for upkeep of England's cathedrals

The people who run England's cathedrals have expressed worries about the cost of maintaining them.

BBC research found that representatives of almost half who responded to a survey were concerned about meeting running costs in two years' time.

All 63 Anglican and Catholic cathedrals were contacted, with responses gathered from 53.

Worries raised by 24 of those who took part included a lack of public donations and grants.

Robert Pigott reports.
