Pylon painting near Severn Estuary nears completion

A team of specialists is nearing the end of a 13-week project to repaint two electricity pylons which span the Severn Estuary.

The pylons are the second highest in the UK, and are taller than a 53-storey tower block.

Workmen have used special brushes made from Chinese pig hair during the job.

Steve Knibbs reports.
