Afan Lido: £13m Aberavon seafront complex gets go-ahead

9 April 2014 Last updated at 20:18 BST

A £13m replacement for a leisure complex which was destroyed in a fire more than four years ago is "vital" for the community, a campaigner says.

Neath Port Talbot Council has approved plans for the centre on Aberavon seafront, with building work set to start at the end of April.

The old Afan Lido was gutted by fire in 2009 and demolished in 2011.

Nick Palit reports.
