Lacock church's chalice quandary


A church in Wiltshire has found itself at the centre of a moral maze over an ancient artifact. For centuries the parish church in Lacock has owned a medieval communion chalice, but it's never been valued, until now.

Insurers have put its worth at £1.8 million pounds.

The church is now in a quandary over whether to sell the chalice and keep the proceeds.
