Disused Shepton Mallet jail becomes tourist attraction

A disused prison in Somerset has been turned into a temporary heritage tourist attraction.

The Shepton Mallet site is due to be redeveloped, but before the work begins it has been opened up for guided tours over the summer.

The jail held inmates as recently as 2013, although the last execution of a prisoner took place in the 1946.

BBC Points West's Fiona Lamdin had a chance to look around.
