A plan to regenerate the high street in a Worcestershire town has been awarded £1.2m in lottery funding.

The money will be used to repair current buildings and bring back traditional shop fronts in Bromsgrove.

Shopkeepers are being encouraged to apply for grants to renovate their premises, the council said.

The council has already received £1.6m in lottery funding after Worcestershire County Council committed £400,000 towards paving and street furniture.

The grant scheme will run for five years until 2017.

A spokesman for the Heritage Lottery Fund said the town centre had "suffered in recent years from significant social and economic decline".
