Two new bicycle repair stations have been installed in a seaside town.

These have been put up outside the Pavilion Theatre in Marine Parade, Worthing and in Findon Road, Findon Valley.

Worthing Borough Council said the repair areas, which are free to use, have "quality retractable tools" that will help cyclists top-up tyre pressure, adjust brakes and tighten loose bolts while out on bike rides.

Councillor Beccy Cooper, the leader of Worthing Borough Council, tested the repair station using her own bike.

She was able to check tyre pressure and try out the equipment.

The new installation is funded by The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The funds provided 110 new bike racks earlier this year across the town.

The aim is to encourage active travel across the area.

A spokesman for Worthing Borough Council said: "We hope the new equipment will be useful for cyclists."
