Weston has once again experienced a raft of changes, with the opening of Dolphin Square, the Brean Down Way cycle path and the revamped Italian Gardens.

Photographers have been out and about documenting these developments, while also capturing some stunning landscapes and wildlife pictures in the process.

Mercury readers have also followed the town’s yearly goings-on, from sporting action, to Comic Con and Weston Pride.

The images, which have been shared on iWitness24, capture Weston at its very best.
