Gedling pit site to become a country park

One of the last derelict colliery sites in the East Midlands is set to become a country park.

It has been more than 20 years since plans to redevelop the former Gedling pit, north of Nottingham, were first discussed.

The planned makeover will cost Gedling Borough Council £1m.

John Hess reports.
