Plans to restore a derelict Lido in Pontypridd have been given a funding boost from the EU.

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council's £6.3m plans to redevelop the facility in Ynysangharad Park will benefit from around £3m from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.

The money will be used to restore the historic Lido by creating three pools, a new cafe and a dry adventure play facility.
