Due to regular bad behaviour children will now only be able to use the swimming pools if they are accompanied by an adult.

Tipton Leisure Centre released a statement today confirming the ban of children without an adult.

A spokesman said: "Due to recent unsociable behaviour in our swimming pools, we have amended our admissions policy to support our members & customers.

"Children aged 16 and under will need to be accompanied by an adult (aged 18+) to attend any public swimming session operating from 4pm Monday to Friday and all public sessions on Saturday and Sundays."

The spokesman added: "Thank you for your understanding in advance."

Sandwell resident Lin Guest lamented the bad behaviour in the pool.

She said: "How disappointing that young people can't be trusted to behave anymore."
