Work has begun on a £3m rehabilitation centre for injured jockeys at Malton in North Yorkshire

Jack Berry House is being built by the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF).

It is set to open later this year with a gym, hydrotherapy pool, treatment rooms and respite accommodation.

Lisa Hancock, chief executive of the IJF, said support for the centre, named after the charity's vice president, had been "staggering" and £2m of funding had already been secured.

Mr Berry, a former jockey and trainer, said he was "honoured" to have the centre named after him.

The centre will be similar to the £5m Oaksey House at Lambourn, Berkshire, which the IJF opened in 2009.
