An operation to lift 27 tons of scaffolding onto the roof of Winchester Cathedral for repairs to be carried out has been delayed. After months of planning and preparation it was decided this morning that more weight was actually needed as ballast on the gigantic crane that's being used. It's hoped the delicate operation to raise seven huge sections of framework onto the top of the East End of the cathedral will go ahead tomorrow instead.
Winchester Cathedral architect Nick Cox explains why the operation had to be cancelled today.
