Call to develop Brighton's Black Rock pool site

Campaigners are calling on Brighton and Hove City Council to develop the derelict site of the former Black Rock swimming pool.

The Black Rock site has remained vacant since the swimming pool was demolished in the 1970s.

In November the council approved plans to create a temporary sand sculpture theme park on the land near Brighton beach.

Footage of the venue during its heyday in the 1930s and 1940s was recently unearthed.
