North Devon swimming pools reopen after £1.5m refurbishment

Two swimming pools in Devon have reopened after being refurbished at a cost of £1.5m.

About £1m has been spent repairing the swimming pool building at North Devon Leisure Centre in Barnstaple, and installing new changing facilities.

In 2011, Great Torrington's Swimming Pool was closed after concerns about the safety of the roof. About £500,000 has been spent repairing it.

Local authorities helped fund both the projects.
