Queen at service for church organ restored in Durham

The Queen has attended the rededication of a church organ after it was restored in Durham.

The organ was removed from its chamber at the Temple Church in London in August 2011. It was dismantled and taken to Durham for cleaning and repairs, but is now back in place.

The joint chairs of the organ fund appeal committee, Sir Anthony May and Michael Blair QC, said: "The organ has not simply been repaired; it has been restored to its original and proper glory."
