A section of the outer wall of Rochester Castle which collapsed after heavy rainfall has been rebuilt.

English Heritage and Medway Council repaired the section of wall, which surrounds the castle's medieval walls.

Councillor Howard Doe, the cabinet member for community services, said the 12th Century castle was a vital part of the area's heritage.

The work involved installing a concrete-based slab to reduce the risk of further subsidence.
