Pontefract Castle no longer 'at risk'

Pontefract Castle is being taken off Historic England's 'at risk' list - after a multi million pound revamp.

It was put on the register back in 2003 because of the poor conditions of the ruins.

Neil Redfearn - who inspects monuments in Yorkshire for the organisation - says restoring it has been challenging.

The work has stabilised the castle's structure and opened up areas which hadn't been seen for hundreds of years.
