A swimming-pool at a holiday park has reopened following an incident that sparked an emergency response.

An ambulance and four fire brigades rushed to the Haven Seashore in Great Yarmouth on Tuesday (July 30) following reports of a chlorine leak and people experiencing breathing difficulties.

The pool was closed and seven people were assessed and discharged at the scene.

Firefighters inspected the area but found no evidence of a chemical leak.
