Work has started to develop a community woodland and outdoor education centre on part of the site of a former foundry in Leamington Spa.

Last month Warwick District Council gave planning permission for the project at Princes Drive, after an old Ford plant was demolished in January.

Environmental group ARC CIC, behind the scheme at Foundry Wood, is building a fence around the site.

It said work would also focus on laying a path through existing woodland.
