A new £25m leisure centre in Bridlington is to open next month.

The facility, which is being built on the seafront, will have a 25-metre pool and a leisure pool with flume rides, a sports hall and health suite.

It replaces the former Leisure World, which was demolished in 2014, because the building was beyond economic repair, the council said.

Stephen Parnaby, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, announced the opening date of 23 May.

He described the project as "a big landmark in the regeneration of Bridlington".

The centre has been partly funded by Sport England and the Coastal Community Fund, which awarded the council £2.1m in March 2014.
