Campaigners were celebrating today after leisure chiefs lifted the threat of closure from Dalry Swim Centre.

But they voiced fears that plans to shut the Victorian baths in Caledonian Crescent would be revived next year and vowed to carry on the campaign to secure its future.

The swim centre was one of four facilities, including the Crags sports centre on the South Side, earmarked for possible closure as part of Edinburgh Leisure's cuts to meet a four per cent reduction in funding from the city council.
