200,000 revamp for rail station
A new-look railway station has been unveiled in a Derbyshire town.

Passengers arriving at Belper will pull in to a transformed station, after 200,000 was spent regenerating the station over the past two years.

The improvements unveiled on Thursday included new shelters and CCTV cameras to provide greater security.

A team of long-term unemployed working with the charity Groundwork Erewash Valley helped work on the re-landscaped railway garden.

The Derwent Valley Rural Transport Partnership was also involved with the work.

Project officer Alastair Morley said it was important to preserve the station's past.
