Offenders repaint Brighton seafront railings
Offenders supervised by Surrey and Sussex Probation Trust are repainting Brighton's seafront railings for the busy tourist season.
Work is being carried out over the next two weeks to touch up rust spots caused by winter weather.
The work is taking place under Community Payback, which allows offenders to make amends to the community for harm they have caused.
Surrey & Sussex Probation Trust director of interventions Arthur Wing said: "This is the third time offenders have been used to paint the seafront railings.
"It's great that they are able to make amends for their crimes in such a highly-visible and positive way - making the city look better in time for another busy tourist season."
Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears said: "We're having a big push so the railings are looking good in time for the start of the school summer holidays."
She said the city was receiving "tremendous support" from the probation trust which was providing a workforce for two weeks to help the city look its best.
The operation, which started last Monday, involves 88 people including council workers.
