Peterborough Cathedral will carry out urgent repairs to parts of the building's 19th century floor thanks to a £200,000 grant.

The funding has come from the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund. Specialists will work to restore around 21,000 small tiles in the Cathedral.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

A meeting will be held today to investigate the way the catholic church dealt with concerns about a former priest in Norfolk who's been jailed for child abuse.

Father Anthony McSweeney was sentenced on Friday for abusing a boy at a care home in London.

The church will meet police and other local authorities to look into why McSweeney was moved from a parish in Essex to one in Norwich in 1999 after his cleaner found indecent videos of teenage boys at his home.
