Drake's wedding bells off to be repaired

The bells which rang out for Sir Francis Drake's wedding are leaving Plymouth today to be repaired.

They've been part of St Budeaux Church since the 16th century but had to be silenced last year for safety reasons.

Since then, the church has been busy raising money so the bells can ring again.
