Yorkshire bell-ringers 'reject York Minster plea'

The bells of York Minster could remain silent this Christmas after bell-ringers elsewhere reportedly rejected an invitation to ring them.

York Minster dismissed its 30 volunteer bell-ringers in October after a "safeguarding" issue.

The York Press reported that bell-ringers in Leeds opted to stand by their colleagues and refused York's offer.
