Magherafelt swimming pools will reopen on Saturday morning, after they were closed due to an accident.

On Thursday evening, a glass panel fell and smashed at the poolside forcing the closure of the swimming facility.

A spokesperson for Mid Ulster council said: “All the pools at Greenvale Leisure Centre will re-open tomorrow [Saturday] morning.

“The viewing gallery will remain closed.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank everyone for their patience and understanding to date.”
