Empty shop units in Weymouth's Colwell Centre have been turned into an art gallery.

Local artist Chris Lee told Wessex FM he got a group of artists together because he found it depressing to see vacant units.

With funding from the Arts Council, he and around half a dozen others are now using the space to display their work.

They were chosen after going through a selection process.
