Kellingley colliery closure drone pictures of the site

Take a look at Kellingley Colliery a year since the closure of Britain's last deep coal mine.

The mine closed last December, bringing an end to centuries of deep coal mining in Britain.

UK Coal, which owned the mine, blamed competition from cheap coal imports.

Drone footage from the site, taken by Orbital Images, shows what has happened since.

The site has been earmarked for development as a business park.
