A main sewerage pipe in Bridgwater which was badly damaged when a river wall collapsed has been brought back into service.

After flash floods in November a large hole appeared behind the river wall at West Quay, leaving the pipe unsupported and liable to break.

Emergency repairs took place to divert the sewage and involved 1km (0.6 miles) of pipes, pumps and fencing.

It is hoped the remainder of the work will be finished by September.
