Four key people responsible for sprucing up Margate's High Street have resigned.

They were part of a team working on a pilot project by Mary Portas, who's known as the Queen of Shops.

The departures come after concerns were raised about the filming of a television documentary about the scheme.

Margate was one of twelve town centres which received a share of £1.2million pounds of government money to regenerate their local communities.
