Dawlish railway: Time-lapse shows two months of repairs in two minutes

4 April 2014 Last updated at 00:15 BST

The coastal railway line at Dawlish in Devon which was damaged in the winter storms is being reopened to trains on Friday.

About 260ft (79m) of sea wall was destroyed by high tides and stormy seas on 5 February causing a stretch of railway to collapse.

Another storm several days later caused more damage which has now been fixed at a cost of £35m.

This time-lapse footage shows the two-month repair effort in just two minutes.
