The demolition of a Derbyshire town's 74-year-old swimming pool has been completed.

Matlock Lido, built in 1938, was demolished after being replaced by a new £12m leisure centre on the outskirts of town last year.

Derbyshire Dales District Council said the site on Imperial Road would be used as a car park in the short-term.

But it said it hoped to incorporate the land into a major redevelopment in the future.

The Lido was originally an open-air pool until a roof was added in the 1970s.

The district council said a report on expressions of interest in the site would be heard in the coming months.
