The granite running track was installed at Laundry Lane Recreation Ground by Eurovia - the contractor undertaking drainage work in the town.

A spokesman for Thorpe St Andrew Town Council said it was constructed at no cost to the council, saving it £20,000.

Mayor Ian Mackie, who cut the ribbon to open the track, said: 'This is a fantastic addition to our parks in Thorpe.

'We have consulted widely on how to develop our parks and this was one of the key requests, I think everyone will be delighted with the result.'
