Nearly £1m of lottery funding is to be pumped into preserving and improving old properties in an East Yorkshire seaside town.

Buildings in Bridlington's harbour area will benefit from the project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has been granted a further £930,800 after initially securing £50,700 last year.

Residents will be able to apply to the authority for grants to make improvements to their properties.

Some of the money will also go towards improving street furniture and lighting.

The council is contributing extra funds of up to £499,000. Its leader Stephen Parnaby said he was "delighted" by the news.

Fiona Spiers, from the HLF in Yorkshire, said: "We're pleased to support East Riding Council in celebrating and restoring the historic Bridlington Quay."
