Medieval artefacts hidden in church’s secret room

An ancient church in Beverley that dates back to the 12th Century has given the BBC access to a secret room hidden behind its altar.

The room inside St Mary's Church contains some unusual artefacts that would not be normally found inside a parish church including a scold's bridle, which was an iron muzzle used as a form of punishment, and an elaborate maiden's garland from the 17th Century.
