POLICE investigating a fire at Ashbourne Leisure Centre have arrested a third teenager on suspicion of arson in connection with the incident.
A 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man, both from Ashbourne, were arrested on Sunday and a third man, an 18-year-old, also from Ashbourne, was arrested on Monday. All three have been released on police bail until the end of August pending further enquiries.
The blaze, which started in a bin at the rear of the building, damaged the building's plant room, knocking out equipment used for the swimming pool.
The pool is currently closed until contractors finish carrying out an inspection of the damage and any necessary repairs.
An announcement is due soon on how long the closure will go on for and a full story on the fire will be in Wednesday's edition of the Ashbourne News Telegraph.
