A £471,000 redevelopment to restore the "heritage and historic feel" of a Worcestershire railway station has been approved by the county council.

The original Victorian buildings at Malvern Link railway station were demolished in the 1960s.

The plans feature two new buildings, including a booking office, a new platform canopy, more lighting and Victorian-style fencing.

Worcestershire County Council said the work will begin in spring of next year.

The work is expected to be complete by the autumn, a spokesman said.

There are also proposals to increase the capacity of the station's car park, and for better disabled and pedestrian access.

Malvern Link station opened in May 1860.
