Colwyn Bay promenade reopens on Thursday after the latest phase of improvements costing £6.7m.

The work, which began in March, includes flood protection upgrades and resurfacing between Porth Eirias and the pier.

Extra sand has also been brought in to extend the beach as part of the work.

About £25m has been spent since the improvements began in 2011, said a spokesperson for Conwy council.
