Church in search of bell ringers

More than a century of village history could end at a church in Wylam if younger bell-ringers cannot be found.

After 126 years of unbroken bell-ringing at St Oswin's Church, only half a dozen loyal ringers remain.

There are six volunteers to ring the church's six bells, the youngest member 60 and the oldest 83.

The Northumberland church are making a plea to help the long standing tradition to continue.
