Saltdean lido is saved

Residents who fought for two years to stop a businessman building homes on the site of the Saltdean Lido in Brighton are now beginning their campaign to raise three million pounds to take on the building themselves.

The lease for the 1930s Lido was handed back to Brighton and Hove City Council yesterday by former leaseholder Dennis Audley. Campaigners are overjoyed.
