After decades of decay, work is finally set to start on restoring a once endangered medieval building in the centre of Coventry.

The 12th Century grammar school - a scheduled ancient monument - will be turned into new galleries for the city's transport museum.

It's part of an £8.5m project.

Kevin Reide spoke to Hugh Harrison, conservationist and Gary Hall from Coventry Transport Museum.
