Pool temporarily closed by Council

AN ARBROATH paddling pool has been closed to the public in order for repairs to be carried out.

The paddling pool at the town’s West Links has been closed temporarily by Angus Council following the discovery of a broken drain under the pool.

A spokesperson for Angus Council said: “The recent investigation of a leak uncovered a fractured drain directly underneath the pool.

“Arrangements have been made to inspect the drain with a video camera to view the extent of the damage and plan the best course of action to make repairs.

“It is hoped to re-open the paddling pool as soon as repairs have been completed.”
