Alpamare Scarborough water park entry fees 'too expensive'

Entry prices for a new water park that was rescued with a multimillion-pound council cash injection have been branded "unaffordable".

Alpamare water park was bailed out with a loan of £9m from Scarborough Borough Council in 2009 after it was put on hold due to the economic downturn.

Some residents have said £60 for a family ticket to the park - which opens in July - is too expensive.

Its owners said the attraction was intended to be a "special treat".
