Staff have started moving into Doncaster's new £20m civic offices, which have taken two years to complete.

The building has been officially opened by the town's mayor, Peter Davies, who said it was a "credit to the town".

By the end of January 1,600 members of staff will have moved in, providing most council services under one roof.

It is the first building to be completed in the town's new civic and cultural quarter, a £300m development in the Waterdale area of the town.

Mr Davies said: "Doncaster can be proud that where other towns and cities have seen their big regeneration schemes falter, ours is pressing ahead.

"The new civic offices consolidate numerous council buildings into one modern, low energy building, and will save the authority £650,000 a year in running costs."
