Margate's Dreamland opens to the public

A funfair that formed the centrepiece of seaside days out for generations of day-trippers has reopened after an £18m restoration.

Dreamland in Margate was built in the 1920s and was a popular attraction, but cheap foreign holidays caused it to close down.

The site on the seafront has been closed for 10 years, with campaigners fighting to save it from development.

David Sillito reports.
