Nottinghamshire museum highlights Luddite revolt

A new gallery at a Nottinghamshire museum tells the story of a revolt that started more than two centuries ago.

The Luddite movement began in Arnold but eventually spread to the rest of the country.

Paul Baker, from the Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington, said most people do not realise where the attacks started.
