A £660,000 refurbishment of a village hall in Radstock has been completed by the local authority.

Victoria Hall was closed in May after a survey found its electrical system presented a "a clear danger of fire or risk of death".

Bath & North East Somerset Council said the building has now been "brought up to 21st century standards".

The last phase of the revamp saw the first floor restored to expose original Victorian architectural features.

Councillor Paul Crossley said the authority's investment in the project "has resulted in a facility where local people can feel rightly proud".

He said: "In addition to the excellent rooms now available, we've been able to keep many of the Victorian era features and retain a sense of history."

Two dance studios, gallery space, and a new pop-up coffee bar are now open for use.

A number of community clubs and organisations have signed up to use the building for arts and drama use.
