PENSIONERS can now make a splash for free at Barking and Dagenham pools.

Council bosses promised free swimming, tuition and even aqua fitness lessons for the over-60s. The movie is an extension of the Get Wet! Swim for Free obesity-busting project for children.

Barking and Dagenham Council leisure executive member, Labour Cllr Bob Little, said: "It's never too late to learn how to swim and we hope that our mature residents will sign up for the free lessons."

Free swimming is available at Abbey Sports Centre, Axe Street, Barking, Dagenham Pool, Althorne Way, and Goresbrook Leisure Centre, Ripple Road, Dagenham.
