Westward Ho! rock pool was closed yesterday (Monday) after reports of youths kicking bottles into it.

Torridge District Council drained the pool in case of any broken glass.

A spokesman said yesterday: “Someone reported seeing some youths kicking bottles into the pool.

“It is not apparent whether the bottles have actually broken or not, but to be on the safe side the council thought it best to drain down the pool and remove any glass.”

The search found one, intact, glass, and the pool has now re-opened.
