An investigation was launched after a dead mouse was found in the swimming pool at Honiton Leisure Centre.
A social media post said the rodent was found in the pool on the morning of Saturday, March 2.
The post read: “Whilst we were there, after 20 minutes, my pregnant friend stood on something, after asking someone to look closer, it was a dead MOUSE!”
In a statement LED Leisure Management Ltd, who run the centre, said:
“We can confirm that a dead mouse was found in the pool over the weekend. LED has standard operating procedures for dealing with unwanted objects that very occasionally are found in swimming pools; this one was dealt with and disposed of appropriately without any risk to the health of swimmers and the pool reopened soon afterwards.’
