Canterbury Cathedral held up by duct tape

According to the Sunday Telegraph, which is running a Save Our Churches campaign, there are fears that the 24m-tall Great South Window of Canterbury Cathedral could collapse unless repaired immediately.

Trustees of the cathedral warned in 2006 that there would be "disastrous consequences" unless urgent action was taken to renovate the building, which is suffering from serious damage caused by corrosion and pollution.

Apparently one fifth of the cathedral’s pillars are being held up by duct tape. However, a global effort to raise £50 million by 2011 has so far managed to raise only £9.4 million.
