A tourist attraction featuring a series of caves in Nottingham is reopening after being shut for nine months.

The City of Caves, the entrance to which is in the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, closed in May when Westfield announced plans to revamp the centre.

In December, the site was sold and the renovation of the shopping centre put on hold.

The City of Caves is part of a complex of up to 400 sandstone caves in the city dating back to the Dark Ages.

The attraction has been refurbished and a series of children's activities added, a City of Caves spokesman said.

In March 2011, Westfield submitted plans to Nottingham City Council for a £500m expansion of the shopping centre.

More than 6,000 jobs were expected to be created as part of the redevelopment, but those plans have been shelved.
