RAF Neatishead's Radar Museum in Norfolk closes down

The Radar Museum may need to spend thousands on improving safety

The RAF Radar Museum at Neatishead in Norfolk has been closed down due to fire regulations.

There are fears that the only museum of its kind in the country may not reopen after it was told it would need to spend £50,000 making improvements.

The museum received the bad news after a recent burst in visitor numbers.

"When I got the notification it was the best day we'd ever had for the amount of visitors," said museum curator Doug Robb.

RAF Neatishead first opened as a radar base during World War II.
