Pillars holding up Canterbury Cathedral, founded in 602, are being held together by duct tape because of a shortage of funds needed to carry out urgent repairs.

Experts warn that parts of the cathedral are “falling down” and that the building as a whole is “in serious jeopardy”.

A fifth of the structure’s internal marble pillars are currently held together by duct tape.

In July, masonry around the Great South Window fell out, forcing the authorities to fence off the area around the window and south entrance to protect the public.
