Blackburn Swimming Pool Legionella Closure

Councillors have called for an urgent review into all council buildings after a swimming pool was closed due to legionella bacteria.

Blackburn's Daisyfield Pools shut on 19 August after the bacteria, which causes Legionnaires' disease, was traced in hot and cold water supplies.

It was later revealed that Blackburn with Darwen Council faced £3.1m in repairs for the wider building.

Two councillors said it raised "major concerns" about council properties.

After its closure, it was revealed the council faced bills of £71,000 to refurbish the site and £3.1m for wider building repairs.
