Bath Abbey has hot springs heating idea

Exploration work is taking place at Bath Abbey to see if the city's famous thermal waters can be used to heat Bath Abbey.

The local council and church say if the idea works it could save thousands of pounds in heating bills using a natural source of energy.

Engineers went down to the Great Roman Drain which runs under Bath to investigate.
