A consultation has been launched into plans for a new six lane swimming pool in Hull.

The proposed £6m facility at Woodford Leisure Centre would see the closure of East Hull Pools on Holderness Road, which has been open since 1898.

The Hull City Council consultation is running until 5 January.

The local authority has said the new 25 metre pool would be more modern, energy efficient and less expensive to maintain and run.
