Despite a last-minute hiccup the Jubilee Pool in Penzance has opened to the public.

The baths - which open for their summer season this weekend - have been taken over by a community group after problems trying to find a private commercial operator.

Plus the local gem could soon become Britain's first outdoor pool to be heated by geothermal energy if plans go ahead.

The owners of the historic Jubilee Pool in Penzance want to make the improvement so a part of it will have warm water all year round, starting in 2019.
