The main swimming pool at a South Shields leisure complex is to be closed this weekend.

Visitors to Haven Point, in Pier Parade, have been advised that only the leisure waters at the facility will be open on Saturday and Sunday.

The main pool, teaching pool, sauna and steam room will be closed, to allow the South Tyneside Swimming Club Gala to take place.

The leisure waters, which feature a bubble spa, spray and water play, will remain open, but sessions will be limited to 40 minutes to help manage demand.

Multi and duo activity members who have the swim option as part of their membership at Haven Point have been advised that they can access Jarrow Community Pool and Hebburn Central at no extra cost, while the swimming gala takes place.
