Marcus Trescothick and Ian Blackwell get the project underway
The redevelopment of Somerset's County Ground has begun on Thursday after more than five years in the planning.

Somerset and England cricketers Marcus Trescothick and Ian Blackwell kicked off the 15m project by helping to demolish some of the stands.

The work at Taunton will include building three new spectator stands, capable of holding 3,000 people, and apartments for the over 55s.

It is estimated the project will be completed by the middle of August.
