Two swimming pools that were closed last week have reopened, the site's operator has said.

The pools at Inverness Leisure were shut after a potential risk was found with a window in the roof.

There were concerns the window over the leisure and competition pools could be "displaced during high winds".

Inverness Leisure, the organisation that runs the site, said the problem had been resolved.

Some scaffolding used in the inspection work will stay in place.

Inverness Leisure said: "A structural engineer undertook an on-site assessment to the windows on the roof which had previously prompted centre management to take a safety-related decision to close the pools to the public last week.

"On inspection it was clear there was one window along the roof junction that required immediate attention and this has now been attended to.

"We are now pleased to say that appropriate remedial works have been agreed which has made all of the windows safe."
