A £60,000 parkour ground has opened in Grimsby.

Parkour athletes, also known as free runners, use strength and balance to overcome obstacles.

The ground, at Duke of York Gardens, is the region's first purpose-built centre for the sport, North East Lincolnshire Council said.

Money for the park was raised by local enthusiasts with support from the council and Humberside Police.
