Swimming pool ‘to close’ if it gets too wet


PD*27444386

An outdoor swimming pool, the London Fields Lido in Hackney, north London, has warned swimmers that the pool might have to be closed – if it gets ‘too wet’.

The health and safety rules have apparently been introduced at the lido in Hackney for the protection of the pool’s users.

But the policy raised fears that health and safety guidelines were being taken too far.

Hackney Council said the rules were only enforced in extreme weather, when there was torrential rain, hail or thick fog which may stop the lifeguards from seeing people in the pool.

A spokeswoman said: “Very occasionally extreme weather can impair visibility for our lifeguards. We make no apology for providing protection for swimmers from drowning.”
