People can explore what life was like in a 1960s mining town at a new exhibition at the National Coal Mining Museum.

The Less Favoured, put together by photographer Patrick Ward, will offer a glimpse into the mining communities of Horden, County Durham and Workington, Cumbria.

The exhibition starts on Monday.
