Plans to redevelop a Somerset eyesore are going on show to the public.

The Highbridge Hotel, on Huntspill Road, in Highbridge, has been hit by fire twice in the last five years and is now derelict.

But the owner has put forward proposals to turn it into a mix of houses, flats and YMCA accommodation.

Sedgemoor District Council is holding a drop-in session for people to comment on the plans at Highbridge Community Hall between 15:00 and 19:30 BST.

The plans, by owner Mead Realisations, also involve the former cattle market.

The scheme will be considered by the town and district planning committees at a later date.
