RIVERSIDE paddling pool in Stourport has been forced to close yet again for repair work. 

The popular pool had only just reopened after it was targeted by vandals last month. 

This week, Stourport Town Council posted on Facebook: "We are sorry to report that the Riverside Paddling Pool is closed until further notice due to urgent repairs. 

"We will keep you updated".

On July 16 the popular family hotspot was forced to close just before days of record-breaking hot temperatures.

Vandals had ripped up the surface of the pool which caused damage to the middle area.

This was just four days after the pool reopened following a filtration problem.

To prevent further vandalism, the council said that CCTV is being installed and notices will be displayed.
