Ely Cathedral has been given £500,000 to carry out important repairs on its South Nave Aisle roof.

The money, which comes from the First World War Centenary Commemoration Fund, will be used as part of a continuing programme to restore and conserve the historic Cambridgeshire building.

It is the fourth grant the cathedral has received from the fund.
