Banksy's Dismaland 'leaves £20m tourism boost'

It was branded Britain's most disappointing tourist attraction, but Banksy's Dismaland has been a shot in the arm for Weston-super-Mare, attracting thousands of people to the town.

Dismaland has sold out everyday for five weeks, and tourism chiefs in North Somerset predict it has brought £20m of business to the seaside town.

Some 4,500 paying customers have entered every day since it opened five weeks ago, egged on by hundreds of thousands of social media postings across the world.

Dave Harvey reports.
