Progress is being made on the construction of a new sports and leisure centre in North Lincolnshire.
Work is well under way on the Axholme North Sports Centre, which is being built next to the Axholme Academy in Crowle.
The multi-million pound North Lincolnshire Council project is set to include a four-lane 25-metre swimming pool, gym, fitness studio, changing rooms and a spectator area.

There will also be a multi-use games area for football, hockey and other sports, tennis courts and a changing places toilet, while the school's sports hall will be given a makeover to complement the new sports centre.
Preparation work is now being carried out on the site, with the facility expected to open in late spring next year.

Axholme North ward councillors John Briggs and Julie Reed joined Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy in a visit to see the progress made at the site on Friday (June 30).

"We asked residents what they wanted and they said they wanted a sports facility in Crowle. The new sports centre will provide top class facilities and secure the council’s commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of its residents."
