Troubled centre opens more spaces
Castlepoint Centre
The centre was closed over concerns about the car park's safety
Another 600 car park spaces have been opened at a shopping centre which was forced to close over safety fears.

The 200m Castlepoint Centre near Bournemouth in Dorset was closed on 1 December over concerns that the concrete in the car park was unsafe.

About 1,600 of the total 2,975 car park spaces are now available but not all of the shops have been reopened.

The centre was partially reopened on 20 December after structural work was carried out.
