Renovation work has started on the inside of an historic Staffordshire chapel which was formerly threatened with demolition.

It is the second phase of a £2.5m revamp on Bethesda Chapel in Stoke-on-Trent, with national lottery funding.

The first stage of the project saw the building weather-proofed. The latest work is due to be completed by Spring.

The Historic Chapels Trust has said the building could host concerts and exhibitions in the future.

The Grade II-listed building appeared in the first series of BBC Two's Restoration programme in 2003.
