Pro skateboarder Tony Hawk backs campaign to save North Yorkshire skate ramp

Pro skateboarder Tony Hawk has offered support to a campaign trying to save a skate ramp in North Yorkshire.

Ryan Swaine has been campaigning since March 2021 to save the rare halfpipe ramp at the skate park in Norton-on-Derwent, near Malton.

Mr Hawk said he "fully backed" the campaign and said Norton Town Council should be working to help save the ramp.

The town council has voted to stop a second phase of renovating the ramp, citing health and safety concerns.
