Drone pictures are offering a bird's eye view of what Great Yarmouth's new leisure centre looks like now the outside is finished.

A new, smaller, Marina Centre is taking shape on the site of the old, providing fun and fitness with a new pool and two flumes - including a two-person slide reckoned to be the only one for miles around.

Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said despite the Covid pandemic it was on schedule to open in July this year.

He said apart from the car park most of the work outside had been completed and secured.

Inside tests were already underway with the 25m pool having been filled with water.

It will be run by Freedom Leisure under a ten year contract.

The not-for-profit leisure trust is due to take over at the Phoenix Pool and Gym on January 15.
