New problems hit Burnham-On-Sea swimming pool

New problems have been found with the floor of Burnham-On-Sea's swimming pool this week - that may mean the whole pool may have to be re-tiled.

Mark and Sara Cox-Conklin, owners of the Burnham Swim and Sports Academy, discovered a large 15x3 metre area of tiles had worked free on Tuesday night.

Sara told that while the pool would open today (Thursday February 26th) as normal, it may have to temporarily close in the coming days for further repairs.

The pool only re-opened this week following a partial collapse of one of the pool's wall last December when a large number of tiles came off the side.

Sara told "We were shocked to find the new problems this week, just a few hours after re-opening the pool."

"We will be open as normal on Thursday while the problem is investigated, but then we'll have to see whether more work is needed."

The cafe, shop and other facilities will be open as normal.
