A huge urban regeneration programme is taking shape in Plymouth. The overhaul of the North Prospect estate is the biggest make-over the city has seen since the Blitz. It will be several years before it's finished. 800 houses will be bulldozed and 1,200 new houses built.

300 existing houses are getting new kitchens, bathrooms, and insulation inside and out.
