Revamping the historic Leas Lift will cost £500,000.

But the popular attraction won’t be ready for the summer, it has emerged.

The Folkestone Leas Lift Company Community Interest Group (FLLC) also said it hopes to "keep the lift open long into the future".

It was closed in 2017 after the Health and Safety Executive determined a secondary braking system needed to be installed to comply with legislation.

Now a website has been launched providing updates on the repairs.

It features a never seen before video with director Philip Gearing giving a tour of the lift’s 'engine room' and water tank.
