Methodists open skate park in Cornwall

An indoor skate park has opened at an industrial unit in Cornwall with help from local Methodists.

It been built in a 7,500 sq-ft warehouse and has ramps for skateboards and stunt bicycle riding.

The Powerhouse group said the park would provide a much needed resource for young people in the area.
