Work has started on a £3m revamp of a shopping centre in Lancashire.

Addington Capital, owners of Charter Walk in Burnley, said the project would create up to 50 jobs.

The redevelopment includes a new facade, enhancing the market square and turning seven units into three large shops.

Manager Chris Gribbern said the revamp came at an exciting time for the centre, which was "bucking the trend" with three empty shops out of 86.

He said: "It has been a number of years since the centre has had investment and the plans are very exciting. It will give it a great new modern look."

The work is expected to be complete by spring 2014.
