Bradford’s National Media Museum will not close, MPs have been told.

The City’s MPs met Culture Minister Ed Vaizey who gave them a categorical assurance that the media museum in Bradford will not close.

The government did not confirm his comments but said: “We are clear about the value of the (museum) to the local area and to the UK.”

A campaign to save the museum started after its owner, the Science Museum Group, said it would have to close one of its three museums in the north of England if its budgets were cut by a forecast ten per cent in the next government spending review.
