A £34m redevelopment of Southampton City College has been unveiled to students on the first day of the new academic year.

Two new buildings opened at the further education college, which caters for 16-to-18-year-olds and adult learners.

The development includes a 240-seat theatre, a hair and beauty salon, restaurant and kitchens, a TV studio, lecture theatre and seminar rooms.

The work is the final stage of eight years of redevelopment costing £48m.

A spokeswoman for the college, in St Mary's, said about "80% of the campus is now new and purpose-built for the highly-vocational curriculum".
