Dilapidated building turned into beach huts

A run down building is being transformed into a row of surf pods to accompany Europe's first artificial reef, Bournemouth Borough Council has said.

The beach huts will have balconies with panoramic sea views of the £1.4 million reef in Boscombe, Dorset.

Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, who created fashion brand Red or Dead, have been brought in to turn the neglected 1958 Overstrand building into about 59 bespoke huts.
