Police end Dimensions swimming pool corruption inquiry

Police have ended an investigation into claims of corruption over the closure of a swimming pool in Stoke-on-Trent.

In 2009, three men were arrested over plans to close the council-run Dimensions Pool in Burslem.

Staffordshire Police later said there was insufficient evidence and no-one was charged.

In October 2010, a fresh complaint led to a further investigation, but police now say they are satisfied that no new information has come to light.

A police spokesman said: "In October Staffordshire Police received a complaint linked to Stoke-on-Trent City Council's dispute with Waterworld about the possible closure of Dimensions in 2007/2008 and the settlement that followed.

"We have now reviewed this matter and are satisfied that there is no new information contained within the complaint. Therefore, we won't be taking any further action."
