Plans have been revealed for a climbing facility in a Cambridge church.

The former Emmanuel United Reformed Congregational Church is next to the Fitzwilliam Museum on Trumpington Street.

Pembroke College, part of Cambridge University, hopes to install 10metre climbing walls within the tower.

The College has already converted the main ground floor space into an auditorium for lectures and events.

The plans will be considered by the city council, before a decision is made on whether the changes can go ahead.
