A POOL in Abingdon has temporarily closed due to “unforseen circumstances”.

White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre, in Audlett Drive, was the only pool available for residents to use during the hot weather.

However, the facility released a statement earlier today (15) stating it has had to temporarily close. It is unknown when the pool will reopen.
