After the clearance work and then the big wheel, work on Weston-super-Mare's new pavilion finally got under way on Thursday.

A special barge, floated across the Bristol Channel from Cardiff, will begin to put new foundations into the sea bed.

The work is expected to last for almost four months.

BBC Points West's Tracey Miller reports on the rebuild.
