Dawlish railway line: Before and after

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.

Jon Kay revisited the line to recall how it looked after the storms - and reveal how it looks now.
