Campaigners in Knottingley will stage a protest against plans to close the town’s swimming pool.

In February Wakefield Council announced plans to close Pontefract, Castleford and Knottingley pools and replace them with one leisure centre in Glass Houghton or Pontefract.

Pool user Tricia Heaton has arranged the protest outside Knottingley Sports Centre, Hill Top, on Saturday May 3 from 11am.

She said: “Me and my friends have been using the pool for years, I can’t believe they’re even thinking about shutting it.

“We just want to get as many people down to the event as possible.”
