Not in the deep end

Youngsters in Hammersmith & Fulham won't benefit from the Government's free swimming offer for under 16s because Tory H&F council has decided not to participate in the scheme.

The council has trumpeted its support for free swimming for the over 60s, another Government initiative, with a quote from Tory cabinet member Cllr Paul Bristow. Meanwhile Middlesbrough - where Cllr Bristow harbours ambitions to be the local MP - has opted to provide free swimming for under 16s.
