The swimming pool at Yarborough Leisure Centre in Lincoln is to remain closed as repairs are made to the ceiling.

The City of Lincoln Council announced on January 6 it had to take the decision to temporarily close the pool as a precautionary measure due to a technical issue.

Simon Walters, director for communities and environment at the council, issued an update on Facebook on January 12, explaining the pool is closed for the rest of the week and contractors are assessing how long the repairs will take.

He said: "Specialist contractors, during their routine inspections have indicated work is needed relating to the ceiling above Yarborough Leisure Centre’s main swimming pool.

“Further works will take place this week to determine timescales for the renovation of part of the ceiling, and we expect to be able to announce our plans moving forward next week.
