A new £5m swimming pool is to be built in South Elmsall after it was approved by councillors.

Minsthorpe Community College will run the pool, which replaces the previous local facility that closed in April 2013.

The old pool had suffered a major crack in its tank and the building needed upgrading at a cost of £1.2m.

Wakefield Council will provide the college with £135,000 a year to support its running costs.
