Two men clashed in a ‘pool rage’ incident at Pendle Leisure Centre in full view of schoolchildren.Yikes!
Phil Storey, chief executive of Pendle Leisure Trust, which operates the centre, confirmed an ‘incident’ had taken place on Monday afternoon.Very ominous. What is it about swimming that seems to incite aggression and unrest?
He said the matter had now been passed to police for an investigation to be carried out.
So, what actually happened?Really? My horror movies are usually much, much more horrific than that...
It comes after an eyewitness said one of the men grabbed the other by the neck after the pair collided in the designated lane swimming area, at around 2.30pm.Sadly, these days, it's not...
The witness, who asked to remain anonymous, said the man appeared to throw the other swimmer over a rope separating the lanes from the rest of the pool.
He said: “He grabbed the other guy by the neck and started shouting ‘I’m going to kill you’ - it was unbelievable. ”
“There pool was full of schoolchildren and they were so horrified, they were screaming and had to get out.
“It was like something out of a horror movie. I still can’t believe it.”
That's more like it!
