Surveying work has begun as part of plans to build a new reservoir near to the existing facility in Cheddar, Somerset.

Bristol Water said the new reservoir is necessary to meet the demands of a growing population.

Jeremy Williams, from Bristol Water, said they would find out more information about the geology of the site to help them prepare a design.

The eight-week survey will be followed by consultation on the scheme next year. If built, the new reservoir would be about 200m (650ft) from the existing facility.
