THE swimming pool at Craven Leisure, Skipton, will not suffer as a result of a national chlorine shortage.

Chlorine shortages have meant some swimming pools across the country having to close, with others being forced to restrict use.

The shortages are due to a combination of factors such as a production fall in China, Brexit and the war in Ukraine.

Most chlorine is made in the UK, but other chemicals are made in Eastern Europe where production has been disrupted by the war in Ukraine.

But, the Craven District Council owned Craven Leisure, Aireville Park, is unaffected by the shortages.

A spokesperson for the ouncil said: “Craven Leisure is not affected by the national shortage of chlorine supplies. The leisure centre has a Hyprolyser system producing chlorine to sanitise the pool.”
