ILKLEY Lido will remain closed despite the Government's announcement that outdoor pools are free to re-open on Saturday.

A spokesperson for Bradford Council said: "Unfortunately Ilkley Lido will not be opening on Saturday. Due to the on-going situation with Covid-19 we took the decision to continue important repair work on the Lido which is not expected to be complete before the end of August. This work will ensure that the Lido is structurally sound and will be available for families to enjoy for many years to come."
