Abestos removed at delayed Buxton pool

Workmen have removed asbestos which delayed the refurbishment of a Derbyshire town's swimming pool.

The £2m project at Buxton had been due to finish in June, but was pushed back to September when the building was found to need extensive repairs.

That completion date was later abandoned when the asbestos was found.

High Peak Borough Council said that although it has now been removed, and significant progress made, it could not yet say when the pool will reopen.

The facility closed a year ago for the refurbishment, which includes new changing facilities, new windows and a gym.
