Historic metal railings outside a shop in Cambridgeshire are to be given a makeover thanks to a grant from the local council.

Brian and Linda Storey have been given £750 by Fenland District Council to make the renovations outside their premises on the corner of City Road and High Street in March.

The other half of the money will be sought from elsewhere, as they were given the cash through the Buildings at Risk Fund, reports the Fenland Citizen.

With the money, the metal railings will be repaired and refurbished over the coming weeks.

It was recently suggested that pedestrians using a footbridge at Newton's Cove in Weymouth could see their safety jeopardised after metal railings were removed from the site.

The Dorset Echo reported that stainless steel railings at either end of the bridge had been stolen, which could lead to the closure of the structure if the problem worsens.
