Plans are well underway to turn Margate's amusement park Dreamland into a world-class tourist attraction.
That means bringing dozens of vintage rides back to working order - most of which were mothballed when the park closed for the last time in 2005.
ITV News Meridian has been given an exclusive look at the first rides being restored - and at the gallopers, jets and carousels which are set to charm a new generation of thrill-seekers.
We speak to Fairground ride restorer David Littleboy, Engineering manager Roger Sibley and Jan Leandro from Dreamland Trust.
