Cathedrals get 150,000 heritage funds
Peterborough Cathedral
Peterborough Cathedral was damaged by fire
Three cathedrals in the east of England have been given English Heritage repair grants totalling 149,000.

Peterborough Cathedral in Cambridgeshire, badly damaged in an apparent arson attack in November 2001, will receive grants worth 61,000 towards fire safety improvements.

In Norwich, the Church of England Cathedral will get up to 60,000 to repair and re-lead a cloister roof.

And the city's Roman Catholic Cathedral is to be given 29,000 towards safety improvements.

Richard Halsey of English Heritage said: "Cathedrals form the architectural centrepiece of the historic cities which have grown up around them.

"It is vital that our historic assets are maintained and their futures safeguarded."
