Preservation work at a colliery on the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border has been praised by English Heritage.

Pleasley Colliery's restoration, which has been carried out by a group of volunteers, was said to be a "great example" of how to preserve the rich industrial history of the region.

The colliery, near Mansfield, is one of 129 buildings listed on the East Midlands' "at risk" register.
