'Our customers are important to us': Statement from leisure centre after fire

The owners of a leisure centre damaged by a fire have thanked the emergency services, their staff and the public.

We would like to thank the emergency services and our staff for their fast action in dealing with the incident and to all our customers for their cooperation, understanding and continued support. The centre was evacuated successfully and in line with our emergency action plan.

We would also like to express our gratitude to Marks & Spencer for kindly acting as a reception centre during the incident.

The fire started in the sauna which has been extensively damaged. Authorities are working to find out what caused the fire and the damage will be fully assessed.

For now, the centre will remain closed.

Our customers are important to us and all Riverside health and fitness members, Aquazone swimming lesson participants and Swim 23 members will see their membership fees frozen until the end of March when a further review will take place.

These customers will still be able to use facilities at the other sites we operate in the city.
