The city’s swimming pool has re-opened as planned following urgent repairs over the Easter holidays.

A faulty drainage channel installed during the construction of the £10m Sun Lane Leisure Centre caused a leak, which meant the pool had to close during the Easter holidays.

It re-opened on Saturday, April 26, and members of the Wakefield Triathlon Club were first through the door.

The full cost of the repairs were covered by contractors Willmott Dixon, who are also reimbursing the council for any lost income.
