A warship enthusiast and his family are restoring a Second World War motor torpedo boat in Bridgwater so it can go on display.

This is the fourth ship that restoration expert Paul Childs, his wife, Rhian, and sons, Owen and Simon, have restored.

Mr. Childs and his organization, Militaryboats.org, raised £8,000 to buy the ship and they are now working to restore the hull in Wylds Road before it joins the other restored ships in Watchet.

Paul is hoping to open a floating museum in Watchet featuring five of the country’s most prized maritime possessions.
