Museum to re-open after roof collapse; IN BRIEF.

THE Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum was set to re-open today, just over a month after it closed.

Bad weather blown in by the 'Beast from the East' caused part of the museum roof to collapse in March.

But after repairs, the Skinningrove museum was to open its doors again to the public from 11am.

Initially, only limited parts of the museum will be open and it will run an adapted tour to suit its restrictions.

Other areas will open over time when they become safe.

The museum is working with the Health and Safety Executive, the mine inspector and Redcar and Cleveland Council to eventually re-open the whole museum.

Tours will see a price drop to PS2 an adult and PS1 a child, due to the restrictions.

Since opening in 1983, the museum has proudly celebrated the region's industrial heritage.

Museum bosses thanked everyone for their support during its closure.
