THE CHILDREN'S water attraction at the Pier Approach has been closed because of an electrical fault.

The popular play area - which features multiple water jets coming out of the ground - was cordoned off earlier this week after being out of action for several days.

Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Leisure and Communities Councillor Lewis Allison, said: “The water play area at Pier Approach is currently out of action while we fix an electrical fault this week. It has been fenced off in order for the water jets and fountains to be tested and will be operational in the next few days once the testing is complete.”
