One of Cornwall's most popular landmarks has been vandalised for the third time in as many weeks.

Jubilee Pool in Penzance is described as "the UK's largest, most celebrated Art Deco sea water lido and geothermally heated pool".

That hasn't stopped it being targeted by vandals, however, in a series of incidents of damage.

The most recent saw people break in and cause chaos, throwing food and drink around the cafe area.

It followed closely on from glass being thrown over the pool and into it.

The team at the pool said: "We’re very sad to report that for the third time in as many weeks, Jubilee Pool has been subject to vandalism and damage.

Falmouth Packet:

"It’s soul destroying that there are people who will stoop as low as to break in solely to inflict damage especially given that the pool belongs to the local community.

"People have invested their time and hard earned money to save this pool and it’s so dispiriting that there are others out there who want to damage it.

"We will be working with the police to try and identify those who did this. If any of you has any information which might help track them down, please message us and we’ll pass it onto the police."

Falmouth Packet:

They went on to thank everyone who had sent messages of support, adding that the pool already had security measures in place and was working with its provider to see whether there were improvements that could be make.

Earlier in July the geothermal pool was forced to close early after someone threw glass bottles over and into the pool during the early hours of that day.

The pool said at the time: "This means that we have had to close the Geothermal pool while we clear the glass and ensure that there is no danger to our swimmers."

The Packet has contacted Devon and Cornwall Police for more information.
