Highest point in Preston opens to the public for night viewings

An historic church is opening up its famous spire to the public so they can take in the spectacular views across Lancashire.

It's already open during the day but people are being given the chance to climb the 172 steps to the top of St Walburge's in Preston at night for the next five weeks.

The tower contains a single bell weighing 1.5 tonnes which is the heaviest swinging bell in Lancashire.
