Migrant crisis: Swimming pool issues rules in Arabic

In October 2015, BBC News visited Oberhausen in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany to study the impact the migrant crisis was having on the city.

The vast majority of people were welcoming of the migrants, but others say they are creating a strain on the local economy where 11% of the city's population are already unemployed.

Six months on, the BBC's Howard Johnson has returned to speak to migrants, aid workers and local people to see how things have changed.

Timor Schrimer, General Manager of AQUApark, Oberhausen's biggest swimming baths, says pool rules have been printed in Arabic on leaflets to help the new arrivals understand German customs.
