Since the council feel they must close local swimming pools they must know the likely consequences of such a move.
That is that local youths and children will find new places to swim.
And very probably highly dangerous new places. Without life-guards or resus kits.
Anyone turning up at the former quarry near Womersley is likely to find themselves in a ‘shaggy dog story!’
As their watchdog, a large friendly Newfoundland, grabs an arm and ‘helps’ them to the bank; ‘assisted’ by his little friend (a Jack Russell).
In most likely places there will be no help.
Just how many drowned young people is an ‘acceptable number?’
