Work has begun on the first new council houses to be built in Wolverhampton for 30 years.

The first of the 40 council-owned properties will be available in July, with the rest ready by the end of March next year, the city council said.

A further 80 houses for private ownership are also being built on the Thompson Avenue site.

Plans to redevelop the seven-acre site were approved by the authority in September.
