World champion boxer Jawaid Khaliq MBE has opened a new community gym at Long Eaton Youth Centre.

Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire police have teamed up to extend the successful Ozbox project, which offers boxing-based fitness sessions designed to help young people stay out of trouble.

The fifth and final community gym planned in Derbyshire was officially opened last Friday thanks to £462,000 county council funding.
