A new £10m leisure centre and swimming pool has opened in West Yorkshire to replace one that closed in 2006.

The Sun Lane Leisure complex in Wakefield includes a six-lane 25m pool, fitness centre, steam room and sauna.

The city was left without a swimming pool when the Sun Lane baths were closed after being found to be in danger of collapsing.

The centre was formally opened by the Rotherham-born Olympic swimmer, Joe Roebuck.
