Repaving delays for Fleet Street in Torquay

Repaving work in a Devon town centre will take a month longer than originally planned, a council has said.

The work in Fleet Street, Torquay, which was expected to finish on 19 February, is part of a £2.5m regeneration project.

Torbay Council said contractors "ran into unforeseen conditions", which included the removal of more concrete and protection of high voltage cables.

The authority said the road would be closed until 19 March.

As part of the regeneration for Fleet Street shopping area, contractors have removed block paving that was originally laid in 1989 and will be replacing it with granite.

A council spokesman said it was important to remind people that shops and businesses remained open.
