A Somerset tourist information centre based in a council building that is due to be closed is to be relocated.

The decision to shut the premises at West Hendford in Yeovil to save money was made by the district council last month.

The town council has now set aside £4,000 towards continuing the service.

A South Somerset District Council spokeswoman said it was looking at relocating the service to its offices in Petters Way.

The West Hendford building also houses the Museum of South Somerset. The Liberal Democrat-run district council is aiming to close the building on 31 March and let it out.

The spokeswoman said the museum would be moved to the Community Heritage Access Centre on the Lufton Trading Estate.

She said relocating it would save the authority about £30,000.
