Costly repairs sees baths close

One of the Black Country's remaining swimming baths is to close in the summer, it has emerged.

Dudley Council said the proposal to close Coseley Swimming Pool was recommended by councillors at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

Recent safety checks showed repairs to the building, which first opened in 1963, would cost in excess of 2m.

A report on facilities in the area considered by the council highlights a new 15m leisure centre in Bilston.
