A Manchester leisure centre has been officially reopened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning (September 13).

Abraham Moss Library and Leisure Centre reopened to the public this summer, following a multi-million-pound investment from Manchester City Council, and council members gathered today to celebrate the renovated facility.

The work is part of the council's long-term transformational strategy to renew and modernise leisure facilities in Manchester.

This follows the multi-million pound refurbishments and re-openings of the Manchester Aquatics Centre and the National Cycling Centre this year.

The Abraham Moss renovation has significantly transformed the campus by introducing a new, modern library and leisure facilities.

Facilities include six-lane swimming pool, learner pool, steam room and sauna, two squash courts, health and fitness suites, (including gyms and studios), sports hall, changing facilities, and the North's very first Urban Cricket Centre, following investment from the England and Wales Cricket Board.

We went down to witness the ribbon-cutting ceremony and take a tour of the new facilities.
