Restoration workers have discovered nine secret crypts, thought to date back to the 1350s, under the old Coventry Cathedral, which still lies in ruins after being bombed by the Luftwaffe in 1940.

Work has been taking place after a crack appeared in part of the 14th Century ruins, in September 2011.

It was already known there were two crypts, which were last open to the public in the 1970s.

Dr Jonathan Foyle, the chief executive of the World Monuments Fund, which is overseeing the work, said it was like finding a "subterranean wonderland".

He said it was hoped the crypts could open to the public once they had been damp-proofed and cleared of rubble.

It's thought that the crypts were used as a special burial place for the nobility.
