Trouble at mill
Bury Council in Greater Manchester, which wants to sell Lowry's A Riverbank to help reduce its £10m deficit, has been warned by the government's Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) that Bury Museum and Art Gallery's museum accreditation may be withdrawn, if it sells the Lowry. Nasty!
Will the MLA browbeat the hard men and women of Bury Council? Is it curtains for Bury Museum or for the Lowry? Watch this space.
