Renovated train station rewarded
A conservation award plaque has been unveiled at one of Birmingham's oldest railway stations on Tuesday.

Moor Street Station, in the city centre, has been recognised by the Railway Heritage Trust as being the best re-built station in the country.

It was originally built in 1909 and recent renovation work was carried out by Birmingham Alliance, as part of the Bullring development.

Record producer and rail enthusiast Pete Waterman was at the ceremony.

The Railway Heritage Trust helps conserve and restore historic railway buildings and structures and is funded by Network Rail and British Railways Board.

The ceremony began at Moor Street at 1130 GMT.
