The roof over William Shakespare’s grave, the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-on-Avon, is in danger of collapse.

Workmen repairing lead on the roof have found that the main beams of the chancel roof are rotting faster than originally thought.

Urgent building work is now required to repair the beams, costing £50,000, to prevent the roof falling in.
