A £30m hospital extension in Northamptonshire has opened to patients.

The Foundation Wing at Kettering General Hospital includes children's and cardiac wards and a new intensive care unit.

Work on the three-storey extension began in December 2010.

It includes a new 16-bed Intensive Care Unit, a 32-bed children's ward, a children's outpatients department and a 28-bed cardiac ward.

It was originally due to open last autumn but flooding, caused by burst pipes, led to a delay.
