And the second, larger pool will be back in use within weeks.

In May, the swim ­centre reopened after a £14million ­upgrade, which took 19 months to complete.

The work resulted in an improved 10-lane, 50m competition pool, a new six-lane, 50m warm-up pool and an extra 1000 permanent seats, creating one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe.

On October 17, the pools closed again, so a wall could be moved to allow temporary seating to be installed in time for the Commonwealth Games.

Part of the centre's roof also had to be strengthened.
