It's been a long wait - 25 years in fact - but people in Cambridge will finally have their own ice rink on Monday.

The Cambridge Ice Arena will welcome the first eager skaters this Bank Holiday - for free.

The facility cost £5.5million pounds to build, and has taken nearly two years. The project was briefly delayed because of the discovery of 194 World War Two grenades on the site.

The Ice Arena will provide a regular recreational skating programme to the public and will also be the home to the Cambridge University Ice Hockey Team.

The facility has seats for 300 people and a fully accessible building, the new facility meets International Ice Hockey Federation requirements and can host visiting international teams.

Ticket for Monday need to be booked in advance through the Better website.
