Work to repair a partially collapsed West Quay wall in Bridgwater, Somerset has been completed.

The wall collapsed in November 2011, moving 20ft (6m) from the quay and dislodging 600 tonnes of masonry.

Nineteen properties alongside the River Parrett were evacuated when the wall developed cracks after heavy rain.

The £3.5m worth of repairs was jointly funded between Somerset County Council, Sedgemoor District Council, the Environment Agency and Wessex Water.

A Somerset County Council spokesman said the work to stabilise the area is now complete.
