Kellingley colliery should be shut, says widow

A miner who died when a roof collapsed at a North Yorkshire pit has been named by UK Coal as 49-year-old father-of-two Gerry Gibson.

Two men were trapped by falling debris at Kellingley colliery on Tuesday.

UK Coal, the company which runs the pit, said earlier it was at a loss to explain the cause.

Carole Cameron, whose husband died at the mine in 2009, told the BBC's Ed Thomas that for another death to happen was appalling.
