Swim turns girl's hair green

Paige Williams, 7

A schoolgirl from Swansea has been left with bright green hair after a trip to her local swimming pool.

Paige Williams, seven, took a dip at Penlan Leisure Centre with her school, and when she took off her swim cap she found her blonde hair had gone green

Paige's mum tried everything to get the green out, but so far nothing's worked.

A spokesperson for Swansea Council, which runs the leisure centre, said it has checked chemical levels in the pool but they were found to be normal.

It added that lots of other people had swum in the pool and no-one else had reported problems with their hair changing colour.
