Expensive safety costs may stop Wirral paddling pool reopening

Health and safety rules look to prevent a seaside resort from reopening its paddling pool, as £350,000 is required for experts to inspect measures such as safety signage.

Homeowners in New Brighton prioritised the redevelopment of the site, with Wirral Council agreeing last year that £10,650 should be allocated for the initiative. However, the council has now been told to scrap plans amid cash and safety concerns, reports the Wirral Globe.

New Brighton Tory councillor Sue Taylor told the newspaper: "It is very disappointing for the town that we will not get the tidal pool as a lot of people were looking forward to seeing it restored."

Recently, the BBC reported that an online auction of four road signs has generated £3,320 for charity.

Two "Welcome to Wootton Bassett" signs sold for £1,170 and £920, while two other signs collectively raised £1,230.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801259773-ADNFCR
