DUDLEY Council has confirmed the swimming pools at Dudley Leisure Centre will re-open tomorrow (Wednesday January 22).

The two pools had been closed since January 13 due to a technical fault - with swimmers diverted to Stourbridge’s Crystal Leisure Centre and Halesowen Leisure Centre.

It is not known what the fault was but council bosses have apologised for the inconvenience and say both pools will be back open from tomorrow (Wednesday January 22).

A brand new state-of-the-art leisure centre for Dudley is expected to open in 2021 on the site of the town's Flood Street car park.

Preparations have already got underway and the car park has now been closed to the public

The existing leisure centre on Wellington Road will remain open until the new facility is up and running.
