Chichester pool closed after swimmer taken ill

The main pool at Westgate Leisure, Chichester was closed for a deep clean today (Friday, July 29) after a member of public was taken ill while in it.

The pool is due to reopen tomorrow (Saturday) at 12pm.

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

“Unfortunately, someone was ill in the pool and so it is important we give it a deep clean before it is reopened. It takes 24 hours to filter and clean the water,” said centre manager Kevin McCoy.

“The pool will reopen in time for our inflatable fun session at 12pm tomorrow lunchtime.”
