Cricket academy in Hull aimed at developing new players

A new £250,000 cricket academy aimed at developing new players has opened in Hull.

The new facility is part of £1m initiative to expand the sport in East Yorkshire. Money has been spent improving local cricket pitches and promoting a "street cricket" scheme.

According to the Cricket Foundation, more than 1,000 children have been involved in the scheme since April.
