A 1m visitor centre has officially opened at a riverside regional park in Northamptonshire.

The Forestry Commission received a government grant to help build the centre in Fineshade Woods, between Corby and Peterborough.

The mixed broadleaf and conifer woodland is known for its success in breeding red kites and a webcam will go live when the latest chicks hatch.

The new centre will be heated by a wood chip burning system.

Also opening on the site is an RSPB centre, craft yard and play area.
