The Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton has been saved after councillors voted tonight to buy the lease from administrators.

The Brewhouse closed suddenly in February after 35 years as an arts centre. More than 50 people lost their jobs.

The council will now hand over the running of the venue to a community arts group.
