Peterborough's Regional Pool will remain closed all week, a spokesperson has confirmed.

Peterborough Ltd, the council-owned company that runs the pool, has confirmed that "it will not be this week" that hot water is restored, meaning the facilities can't reopen.

The pool is currently closed for a sixth day.

They added that "legally the venue is not allowed to open without hot water for handwashing".

The closure also affects people wishing to use the facility's gym or attend fitness classes.

The spokesperson added that "additional public swimming is available at Jack Hunt pool on Sunday afternoon" and apologised for "any convenience caused".

Pool users are still waiting to hear when the facility might reopen.

The facility, which goes by the official title Vivacity Regional Fitness & Indoor Swimming Centre, is located on Bishop's Road in Peterborough.

As well as being a popular leisure facility, it is used for children's swimming lessons.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will share the date for reopening as soon as we can."
