A £3.8m leisure centre has been opened in Staffordshire by local swimming star Adam Peaty.

The 20-year-old won three medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, including two golds. He was also shortlisted for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

Peaty opened the redeveloped centre on Oldfields Road, in his hometown of Uttoxeter on Saturday morning.

It features a 25m swimming pool, a gym, dance studio, sports hall and other facilities.

Named after the swimmer, the pool is also designed to host competitions, with seating for up to 140 spectators.
