More than 200 ex-miners have been reunited at a special event to mark 25 years to the day since the last ever recorded shift at the Gedling Colliery Pit.

Former workers were taken to the site of the old pit which was the lifeblood of the area until it closed in 1991.

It stood derelict for more than 20 years before Gedling Borough Council invested £1.6 million to turn it into a country park.
