Weston-super-Mare's pier to re-open after fire

The Grand Pier in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare is about to re-open after rising from the ashes of a devastating fire.

It has cost £39 million and taken more than two years to rebuild the pier. The owners say attracting thousands of visitors will make it all worthwhile.

John Maguire has been for a look around.
