Skateboarders can use the former B&Q site for another month
A sunken garden at a Guernsey leisure centre could become a skatepark as part of a redevelopment scheme.

Architects are currently drawing up plans for the site at the Beau Sejour centre which would provide a facility for skateboarders and BMX riders.

It is hoped a permanent skate site would deter people from skateboarding illegally on historic monuments.

Meanwhile, a former B&Q site being used as a temporary skate facility has been granted a month-long extension.

The building was originally only due to have been open for skateboard use until Easter.
