Police are hunting two teenagers who went for an early-morning dip in a new £31m swimming pool - three weeks before it is due to open.

The pair broke into Dundee's new Olympia pool last month but the incident was only reported in the last few days.

The new facility includes a 50m competition pool, wave pool, rapid river, flumes and a fitness suite.

It has been built to replace the city's existing Olympia Centre.

Work on the Dundee City Council project began in 2011 and is backed by funding from Sportscotland.

The break-in happened on 21 May. The new leisure centre is due to open at the end of the month.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: "We are aware of this incident and our inquiries are ongoing."

A Dundee City Council spokesman added: "We are aware that a report was made to police by the contractor who was responsible for the building at the time."
