Work has begun on building a £3m cemetery and crematorium complex in Warwickshire.

Rugby Borough Council and Daventry District Council are jointly building the new facility in Rainsbrook Valley, off Ashlawn Road in Rugby.

The plans were approved in September, despite protesters' claims it would harm the environment and generate noise from the extra traffic.

The work is expected to take about ten months, a spokesperson said.

Councillor Alan Hills, from Daventry District Council, said the facility would provide "a much needed resource for residents living in our district who currently have to travel as far as Northampton and Banbury for similar facilities".
