A £31m leisure centre has opened in Redcar.

The leisure, business and community centre includes a six-lane swimming pool, dance hall, gym, sports hall and space for community projects.

Built in Ridley Street, the development is part of a £75m regeneration of the seafront.

Councillor George Dunning, leader of Redcar and Cleveland Council, said the area now has something it "deserves" and should be "proud of".

The centre took more than two years to build.
