Arbroath Swimming Pool has been closed.

Arbroath Sports Centre’s swimming pool has been closed for the second time in less than a month after the discovery of the cryptosporidium bacteria.

The pool was closed to the public on Tuesday and Angus Council released the following statement: “Arbroath Swimming Pool has been closed as traces of cryptosporidium have been found in a water sample. The pool will remain closed to allow us to run the water through the filtration system a number of times before retesting it in a few days’ time.”

The pool was closed at the end of October for several days after a similar discovery.
