A North Somerset railway station has been given a makeover aimed at making it safer and more welcoming.

The work at Nailsea and Backwell railway station included painting shelters and repairing the platform surface.

A spokesman from North Somerset Council said much of the work was carried out by offenders under the Probation Service's Community Payback scheme.

New posters at the station feature artwork by local schoolchildren.

The repairs were organised by the Severnside Community Rail Partnership, First Great Western and North Somerset Council.
