Construction has started on a £4.9m youth centre in Redcar.

The Tuned In!@MyPlace arts, performance and media centre, funded by the Department for Education, is being built on a beachside site at Coatham.

It will provide activities including music, drama, film-making and theatre production for 13 to 19-year-olds.

The centre is due to open in summer 2012 and is part of Redcar and Cleveland Council's regeneration plans for the town.
