A project to restore gardens in a Somerset town will be completed after the main building contractor went into administration, it has been pledged.

Sedgemoor District Council said 95% of work at Marine Cove in Burnham-on-Sea was complete and that the authority would finish the remaining work.

St Blaise, which specialises in the conservation of historic buildings, has gone into administration.

The reopening of the gardens has been postponed.

The gardens first opened to the public in 1927.

District councillor John Swayne said: "It is sad that the company who were doing the excellent specialist work are having their own problems.

"However, that will not stop us finishing this landmark project."
