Newport's medieval ship has 'uncertain' future

The future of the remains of a 15th century merchant vessel unearthed on the banks of the river Usk in Newport is uncertain as funds for its restoration dry up.

The Newport ship was unearthed 11 years ago and since then work has been ongoing to preserve it.

Up to now the work has been paid for by the Welsh government and Newport council but both bodies have said this will end.
