News: Fire Guts Museum, Damaging Folklore Collection

I know I'm pretty late with this news, but I've only just found out myself. A couple of weeks ago, fire destroyed the Cuming Museum, in Southwark, South London. The building housed one of the largest collections of items relating to folklore in London. Although two of the Cuming Museum's three displays were destroyed, most of the items in the collection were in storage.

The museum is currently closed and it is unknown when, or if, it will reopen.
