Arrests after police called to Hilsea Lido
“They remain in custody at this time whilst investigations are ongoing,” said a spokesperson for Portsmouth Police’s Neighbourhood Team.
“We will be patrolling the area and speaking with the staff at the lido about repairs and assisting them with trying to prevent incidents.
“We rely on information from the public and would like to thank the person who called as this has led to some positive action being taken in this case.
“If anyone else witnessed the incident last night (Tuesday) then please call us on 101 and quote crime reference number 44200316897.”
Earlier in the month officers warned that trespassers at Hilsea Lido had been risking their health by swimming in stagnant water.
The outdoor pool is closed this year due to coronavirus and scorching weather prompted Portsmouth Police to remind people the water has not been treated for many months and could be a danger to health.
