By Rachael Woods

High winds and driving rain brought in by Storm Caroline have forced the closure of a swimming pool after its roof was damaged.

Swimmers were turned away from Tenterden Leisure Centre after "parts of the roof came loose".

A spokesman for Serco, which runs the pool in Recreation Ground Road, Tenterden said: "Due to weather damage parts of the roof became loose. We took the decision to close the pool as we couldn't take any risks regarding the health and safety of our customers."
