You can now own shares in a West Country landmark: Somerset's 150-year-old Clevedon Pier.

The only Grade 1 listed pier in the country, once described by former Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman as "the most beautiful pier in England", is now part of a community share offer.

The trustees are hoping to raise £350,000 to help pay for new visitor facilities, which are currently being built.
