Campaigners who saved Bude Sea Pool say they are facing a massive bill for repairs.

A report says work to restore the eighty year old structure will cost around two hundred thousand pounds.

Locals took over the running of the pool, after the council pulled funding. It reopened for the season on April 1st.

There are now fears long term costs could spiral above a million, because of cliff erosion.

Paul Tilzey from Friends of Bude of Sea Pool is calling on the community to rally round:

"You could argue, you know, it should be done by someone els, but the bottom line is, it is an iconic Bude structure. We've won the first battle, the pool is ours. We know have to have more battles to get people on board.

"The cliff behind the pool is being eroded to such an extent that that will need some serious money spent on that erosion, and you're talking there, I hate to say it, of a million pounds plus."
