NINE children, one of them a baby, and an adult were kept in hospital overnight suffering from the effects of fumes after chlorine gas leaked into a crowded swimming pool at a holiday park in Fleetwood, Lancashire, yesterday. Forty holidaymakers - many of them children - were treated at hospitals in Blackpool, Lancaster and Preston after the leak at the Cala Gran complex.

An investigation is under way into the cause of the leak, which is understood to have come from a drum in the indoor swimming pool's chlorination plant.
