Pool safety reminder
As temperatures start to rise in the North East and on the Border, the dangers of portable pools is being emphasised by Royal Lifesaving.
These pools include small blow-up paddle pools, bigger wading pools, and inflatable spas.
The campaign is called “Don’t Duck Out” to promote awareness of the dangers to young children.
Advice includes constant supervision, putting up safety barriers, and making sure the pools are drained after use
