A play area in Ilfracombe's been officially re-opened after a £65,000 refurbishment.

Slade Valley play area now has new climbing equipment, swings and a kick-around area.

The refurbishment happened after requests from local people - it's the only place children on the estate can go to play.

That's not the end of the plans according to Neighbourhood Manager Gary Smith, who said: "We've got a group of young people called Junior Citizens.  They've received the cash and we're just about to go to tender to put another playground in the centre of Ilfracombe."
